Boise Cascade has set a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The company is seeking to reduce its total GHG emissions by an additional 10% by 2014. Through conservation programs, converting from fossil fuels to renewable biomass fuels and by exploring combined heat and power opportunities, Boise set this new goal in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agencys Climate Leaders Partnership.

A voluntary program, the partnership helps companies set aggressive, corporate-wide greenhouse gas emission reduction goals.

While we have been reducing fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions in our operations for many years, we believe setting this next goal and being an active partner in Climate Leaders are important steps in continuing to improve our performance and live up to our commitment to manage our businesses to sustain environmental resources for future generations, Rob McNutt, vice president of public policy said.
