June 20, 2023 By P&PC Staff
Paper Excellence Canada has published its third sustainability report: Forward Focused: 2022 Sustainability Report.
Paper Excellence Canada noted in a statement that it is part of global and North American supply chains that depend on Canada’s well-managed forests which allow the company to deliver a growing range of products to its customers. “Forward Focused: 2022 Sustainability Report” looks at both the company’s achievements and its opportunities to do better within this framework.
This report also looks at Paper Excellence’s environmental and economic impacts nationally and on a mill-by-mill basis. From an environmental standpoint, 82 percent of its total energy use reportedly was renewable in 2022 while the company has continued to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. It is now down by 67 percent since 1990. Paper Excellence was also gratified that Corporate Knights recognized its ongoing efforts and named it as one of Canada’s 50 Best Corporate Citizens in 2022.
“Paper Excellence has grown a lot in the last 18 months; this report focuses on Paper Excellence Canada and what our team has accomplished,” said Graham Kissack, vice-president of Environment, Health & Safety and Corporate Communications. “I’m proud of this report and what we achieved in 2022 despite some broad challenges such as transportation network deficiencies, rising input costs and an ongoing market transformation.”
“To supplement the hard data in the report, we’ve also produced eight “Practices and Perspectives” stories that are linked to our website via QR codes.” said Kissack. “These are slice-of-life stories about what happened at Paper Excellence in 2022. They include topics like Indigenous-led cultural awareness training, responding to rail car shortages, and an artificial reef providing exceptional marine habitat.”
