Resolute Forest Products recently released highlights of its 2021 environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. The company stated in a release that it surpassed its 30 percent greenhouse gas (GHG) emission (scope 1 and 2) reduction target, cutting them by 34 percent compared to 2015 levels.

Further, Resolute noted that since 2000, its climate initiatives have reduced scope 1 and 2 emissions at its pulp, paper and tissue mills by 86 percent. This is equivalent to more than 8.6 million metric tons of CO2 equivalents per year.
