CAMPAIGN: Sustainability Report 2014

These third-party certification programs provide assurance that wood-based products have been procured from well-managed forests and are legally harvested. In 2014, we purchased more kraft fiber than historic levels to support the papermaking operations in Cloquet after the 2013 conversion of that pulp mill to dissolving wood pulp. All of our purchased pulp was certified by one or more standards, which is reflected in the higher percentage of “triple certified” fiber and in part responsible for us reaching our five-year goal one year ahead of schedule. The Point of Harvest certified fiber refers to wood fiber harvested from lands not otherwise certified by one of the forest management standards but by logging professionals who are trained and certified in practices designed to conserve forestland. Our recycled fiber is derived from post-consumer sources and is also FSC® Certified. We do not have a de-inking facility in any of our operations. All recycled fiber is purchased within North America and is processed chlorine free (PCF). All kraft pulp is elemental chlorine free (ECF) and is either made on-site or purchased within North America.
