Ecoleader: National Bank of Canada

Handmade trophy
– February 2018 –

A specialized, handmade trophy !


The National Bank of Canada was looking for a unique, locally-made trophy to reward the participants of the Indie contest organized by Ubisoft. 

The positive impacts of our trophies

Economic spinoffs – One of our most important commitments and values ​​is to design local products. For this project, we worked with the Montreal designers Allstudio. The cutting and engraving of the acrylic were done in our studio in Montreal as well as the production of the trophies. That means 4 local businesses were involved in the creation process for this unique trophy.

Environmental impacts – As we mentioned, the manufacturers are located in Montreal and the production is local. This means the trophies only traveled from Montreal to Toronto –  meaning less than 375 miles. So, not much greenhouse gas was produced overall — that’s a win for the company, and the environment!

Social benefits – By handing out a locally made product, Bell Media is putting the spotlight on local products and showing off the creativity of Canadian designers. The company is therefore positioning itself to promote local talent.

National Bank of Canada – A role model for our Ecoleaders

The National Bank can see the impact it makes by choosing a local supplier: it encourages local creativity, minimizes environmental impacts and supports jobs in the country. This strategy is in line with its mission and overall vision.
