Environmental Stewardship

Protecting our people, communities and the environment has always been part of our core values. That’s why we are committed to reducing our impact in every way possible.

Dedicated by Nature

Each year, we produce more than 1,600 GWh of green energy from renewable sources; we recycle thousands of tonnes of paper and paperboard; we manufacture 100% recycled packaging and tissue products; we strive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at all our plants; we find alternatives to using fossil fuels; and we make every effort to improve our environmental footprint. See the progress we’ve made over the last 10 years to reduce our impact on the environment.
