June 30, 2022 By P&PC Staff
Paper Excellence was named as one of Canada’s 2022 Best 50 Corporate Citizens by Corporate Knights. This is the 15th time that the company has figured on the list. The company operates six pulp and paper facilities in British Columbia and Saskatchewan.
“Receiving this award again from Corporate Knights is a tremendous honour and really speaks to the work Paper Excellence employees do to keep our operations sustainable and environmentally friendly,” said Graham Kissack, vice-president of EHS and corporate communications for Paper Excellence Canada.
The Best 50 award is judged using key performance indicators that relate to the organization’s raw resource use, emissions profile, social performance, safety performance and percentage of revenue from clean sources.
Eighty-five percent of Paper Excellence’s total energy use was renewable in 2021. The company has continued to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions – now down by 66 percent since 1990. Paper Excellence’s products are certified to numerous independent sustainable forestry standards including the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).
