Our Green Commitment

Good for the planet, good for the body.

Actions with real impacts

Concern for the environment plays an important role in what we do, and Groupe Nordik has been working to reduce its impact on the environment since day one. To reduce our ecological footprint in our day-to-day activities, we’ve developed and implemented a policy of resource optimization by bringing together employees and customers to practice responsible behaviors.

Proud to be a part of the ICI ON RECYCLE! program

ICI ON RECYCLE! is a three-stage program from Recyc-Québec whose objective is to recognize industries, businesses, and institutions (ICI) wishing to reach recycling and recovery objectives to improve their environmental impact.

The Chelsea Nordik Spa-Nature is proud to be among the 508 Quebec companies with phase 2 – Implementation certification as part of the ICI ON RECYCLE! program, including 25 in the Outaouais region and 9 in Chelsea. We are especially proud to be recognized as the 1st spa to reach phase 2 in Quebec!

Thanks to the processes implemented at the Nordik Spa-Nature location in Chelsea, over 200 tons of waste will be diverted from landfills every year. Another step forward in protecting the environment!

Groupe Nordik is committed to the planet's well-being.
