We manufacture sustainable paper and wood products from renewable resources that are used every day by millions of people. To that end, we support policies that help our industry grow, create jobs, and foster global market competition so we can continue to provide these essential products.
We support education on recycling best practices as one of the top ways to increase the quantity and improve the quality of paper in the recycling stream. Paper mills want used paper products back so they can turn them into new and innovative products.
The paper and wood products industry is part of a circular value chain that prides itself on sustainable practices. One of the ways we’re doing that is through the production of renewable biomass energy. Then we use that biomass energy to fuel our mills so we don’t have to use as much fossil fuels.
