OUR FIBRE IS FROM WELL-MANAGED, SUSTAINABLE FORESTS

Fibre supply is the life blood of Paper Excellence’s pulp and paper mills and is crucial to the quality of our products and reputation of our company. Today, our customers and the public expect preservation of local ecosystems and protection of human rights as part of the fibre consumption equation. We only use forest fibre with known pedigree from well-managed, sustainable forests.

CHAIN OF CUSTODY POLICY

Paper Excellence commits to its customers that it will provide products that conform to recognized environmental protection standards. This commitment starts with the procurement and subsequent use of wood fibre in the Company’s manufacturing process.

The Company relies on professional, independent third parties to verify that the wood fibre used within its products.

  • Is not sourced from illegally harvested wood
  • Is not harvested in violation of traditional and civil rights
  • Is not harvested from forests where high conservation values are threatened by management activities
  • Is not from plantations or lands being converted into plantations or non-forest use
  • Is not from genetically modified trees
  • Is not in violation of any International Labour Organization Core Conventions

OUR TEAMS OF PROCUREMENT MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONALS ENSURE THAT:

100% of our fibre comes from well managed, sustainable North American forests.

100% of our fibre is managed under our chain of custody programs at our mills using a combination of the FSC®, PEFC™ and SFI® Chain of Custody standards.

100% of our fibre supply is currently assessed as low risk using the FSC® standard.

COLLABORATIVE RELATIONSHIPS

Paper Excellence maintains numerous collaborative relationships with Indigenous People throughout North America creating well-paid local jobs and securing fibre for our mills.

FIBRE FROM WASTE WOOD

Over 60% of our raw fibre comes as sawmill waste wood chips. Saw logs are converted at sawmills into dimensional lumber for homes. The by-product or residual chips come to our facilities for our pulp and paper products while we use the log’s bark to generate green energy.
