Irving Consumer Products, a member of the J. D. Irving Group of Companies, is continuing its commitment to the environment by introducing sustainability goals for its tissue manufacturing operations. While the environment has long been a core value of the company, this is the first time Irving Consumer Products will publicly release sustainability goals.
Irving Consumer Products tissue manufacturing operations’ 2030 sustainability goals include:
a 25% reduction in its water footprint by decreasing the fresh water required to make its products.
a 25% reduction in its virgin plastic footprint in its product packaging.
diverting 90% of its manufacturing waste from landfills by repurposing it for beneficial uses.
*use of sustainably certified fibre in its products.
The Irving Forest Supply Chain, which includes Irving Consumer Products, was declared carbon neutral for the first time in 2020 and again in 2021.** Ensuring the Forest Supply Chain carbon neutral declaration is maintained until 2023 is a key part of Irving Consumer Products’ tissue manufacturing operations’ sustainability goals.
“With these goals we continue to strive to have a positive impact on the environment which is key to being the premium tissue product supplier of choice for our customers,” said Robert K. Irving, President of Irving Consumer Products and Co-CEO of J.D. Irving, Limited.
