Catalyst Paper has made a hefty New Year’s Resolution. The company pledged to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 70% below its 1990 levels, by the year 2010, The Powell River Peak reported.
Catalyst signed a memorandum of understanding at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change, joining the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Climate Savers Program. By the year 2010, WWF Climate Savers companies will conjointly reduce carbon pollution by roughly nine million tons per year, according to The Powell River Peak. This translates to the amount of pollution expelled by two million cars, or 800,000 houses every year.
Over the past two years, Catalyst cut its fossil fuel use by 36%, and has pledged to further reduce emissions by cutting back on energy consumption, by switching from fossil fuels to biomass, by making better use of its equipment and through tracking its CO2 emissions every month.
