The company completed the construction of the facility in December 2020.

Recently JD Irving, Limited published on its website an article about its sustainability actions. According to the company, protecting and restoring the environment is a year-round effort and its operations are continuously working to minimize the footprint on air, land, and water. JD Irving, together with its partners, also invests in research and conservation.

The Irving Tissue plant in Toronto, Ontario completed the construction of a combined heat and power (CHP) facility in December 2020. The natural gas-fired turbines create electricity for the plant while the plant uses the exhaust heat generated from that turbine to create steam that is required to heat the building and make tissue products.

This CHP facility will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and run at a 70% to 80% energy efficiency meaning it uses 70% to 80% of the heat in its process.
