We focus on using resources efficiently and improving our processes to reduce the environmental impact of our operations:

  • Air and water quality and use
  • Reducing energy use
  • Maximizing fiber resources
  • Reducing waste sent to landfills   
  • Using the ISO 14001 International Standard to establish targets for continuous improvement of our environmental performance at our paper mills

we use biomass fuel for
66% of our energy needs

The more biomass fuel we use, the more we reduce reliance on fossil fuels.  Today's 66% use is up from 57% in 2000.

We believe all of us have a responsibility to review our activities and to take actions to reduce and, if possible, eliminate our negative impact on climate change.
