The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) has recognized Resolute with the 2017 AF&PA Leadership in Sustainability Award for Energy Efficiency/Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction for our GHG reduction program. The award was presented at AF&PA’s annual meeting on November 3 in Greensboro, Georgia.
“A series of environmental commitments led Resolute to implement voluntary and pro-active improvements to drastically reduce GHG emissions from their facilities,” said AF&PA President and CEO Donna Harman.
Resolute has adopted a series of ambitious sustainability commitments, including a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (scope 1 and 2) from our facilities by 65% between 2000 and 2015. By improving the energy efficiency of our operations and increasing the use of lower carbon fuels, we surpassed that goal. At the end of 2016, the company had lowered GHG emissions by 73% compared to 2000 levels, equivalent to the removal of 1.82 million cars off the road.
Designed to recognize exemplary sustainability programs and initiatives in the paper and wood products manufacturing industry, AF&PA’s annual sustainability awards are given based on the merit of entries received across multiple categories.
