CAMPAIGN: Sustainability Report 2018

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Each year we survey our performance in important areas of environmental and social responsibility by monitoring key metrics for fiber, emissions, energy usage and the impact of our operations on air, water and solid waste. We use this data to set improvement goals for our operations and interactions with key stakeholders.

Emissions

Particulate emissions stayed flat whereas NOx and SO2 emissions both went down slightly, reflecting relatively stable results for the last three years. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, measured as intensity value (tonnes CO2/admt), are higher than the prior-year which is primarily a function of lower productivity as the Somerset Mill produced less saleable material due to the rebuild of Paper Machine 1, see bar chart. We also measure absolute GHG Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions for each mill, which are reflected in the bar chart.
