Paper Excellence has announced that it has once again been voted one of Canada’s 50 Best Citizen Companies in 2022 by Corporate Knights. This is the fifteenth time that the company, which operates six pulp and paper facilities in British Columbia and Saskatchewan, has won the award.
The Best 50 award is judged using key performance indicators that relate to the organization’s raw resource use, emissions profile, social performance, safety performance, and percentage of revenue from clean sources.
“Receiving this award again from Corporate Knights is a tremendous honour, and really speaks to the work Paper Excellence employees do to keep our operations sustainable and environmentally friendly,” said Graham Kissack, VP of EHS & Corporate Communications for Paper Excellence Canada.
85% of the company’s total energy use was renewable in 2021, and the company has continued to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions—now down by 66% since 1990. Paper Excellence’s products are certified to numerous independent sustainable forestry standards including the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).
