Paper Excellence Announces Corporate Knights Best 50 Win

Paper Excellence today announced it has been voted one of Canada’s 2021 Best 50 corporate citizens by Corporate Knights. This is the fourteenth time that the company has achieved the Best 50 award with Corporate Knights. (Previous awards were presented to Catalyst Paper which is now wholly owned by Paper Excellence.) Paper Excellence operates six pulp and paper facilities in British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

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.

“We continue to be proud of our long association with Corporate Knights and their 50 Best program. In a world awash with plastic waste, we see a bright future for our sustainably sourced and fully recyclable pulp and paper products,” said Graham Kissack, Vice President, Environment, Health & Safety and Corporate Communications.

In 2020, Paper Excellence achieved a 60% reduction of its greenhouse gas emissions relative to 1990 while using an energy basket made up of over 84% renewables. 33% of the organization’s solid waste is beneficially reused or recycled while over 53% of its electricity comes from self-generated green power. 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).
