Bimbo Canada has won two 2023 Clean50 awards: a national award for transitioning from plastic bread bag closures to compostable cardboard clips, and recognition for Jeff Robertson, director of environment and sustainability, as a 2023 Clean50 Emerging Leader.

In April, Bimbo Canada became the first national bakery in North America to introduce compostable bread bag clips on all bread products, a move that reduced the company’s single-use plastic by approximately 200 metric tonnes annually.

Robertson, Bimbo Canada’s director of environment and sustainability, has been named a 2023 Clean50 Emerging Leader and leads a small team in identifying and catalyzing sustainability projects in 16 plants across Canada.

Robertson said, “This award is a testament to all the work that we are doing to run a company that understands and believes that we need to work in ways that support and sustain our environment and the communities that we live and work in.”


Canada’s Clean50 Awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals or small teams, from 16 different categories who have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past two years.
