Our Mission

We strive every day to simplify the complex, deliver the impossible, and move business forward—for our partners and our people—in ever smarter and more sustainable ways.

Our Commitments

People

Our customers and vendor clients are at the heart of everything we do. We make decisions with your success in mind. Your growth is our growth.

And we understand that you’re unique.

That’s why we vow to treat everyone with dignity and respect.

We proudly uphold the guidelines established by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

We make accommodations so that you can receive goods and services in a way that meets your needs. Most importantly, we never promise more than we can deliver, and we deliver on every promise.

Sustainability

From books and magazines to packaging and plastics, TNG handles 1.7 billion recyclable units per year.

We believe in preserving our natural resources—plain and simple.

As part of our green initiatives, we shred, bail, and transport all unsold magazines and paperback products to a recycling facility on a daily basis. We return hardcover, trade, and children’s books to the publisher upon the manufacturer’s request.

And our commitment to environmentally-friendly practices doesn’t end there.

Our sustainability practices reflect our core values. We are just as passionate about preserving the resources we all share as we are about helping the people who depend on us.

Our routine practices include:

  • Recycling plastics, cardboard, waste paper, plastic bottles, soda cans, cartridge toner, IT waste materials, and other consumer packaging at our facilities
  • Converting fleet vehicles to hybrids or more fuel efficient vehicles, as leases are renewed
  • Adding high-volume, low-speed fans to our warehouse facilities to reduce energy consumption
  • Shutting off non-critical computers and equipment when not in use
  • Investing in more efficient systems and equipment and retiring the replaced equipment in an environmentally responsible manner
  • Conserving fuel and lowering our carbon footprint by delivering once per week to our Canadian retail client stores
  • Operating all Canadian TNG large delivery trucks under the “anti-idling” procedure

Giving Back

We’re always looking for ways to contribute to the people and environment around us.

We are proud supporters of the Periodical Marketers of Canada (PMC), an organization that recently approved a $40,000 grant to support a Syrian refugee writer’s family as they flee their home and make a new life in Canada. PMC champions freedom of speech, and so does TNG.
