Paper Excellence donates $50,000 to the Pacific Salmon Foundation

Paper Excellence announced the donation of $50,000 to the Pacific Salmon Foundation to support regeneration and recovery of wild Pacific salmon.

These funds will support the Pacific Salmon Foundation’s Community Salmon Program which supports volunteer and community–driven organizations that undertake salmon conservation and restoration projects.

“With half of Pacific salmon populations in a serious state of decline, we welcome the generous donation from Paper Excellence, which will advance vital community-based salmon enhancement and conservation activities,” said Michael Meneer, President & CEO, Pacific Salmon Foundation. “The Community Salmon Program supports more than 300 volunteer-led programs in B.C. with dedicated individuals committed to improving salmon habitat and survival.”

“We value protecting our freshwater and marine environments that represent our critically important wild salmon habitat,” said Graham Kissack, Vice President, Environment, Health & Safety, and Corporate Communications. “For example, our long-standing work with the community around defending the Cowichan River and our hosting of Coho salmon fry at our Howe Sound mill over the summer so they could stay cool.”

“All of Paper Excellence’s BC mills rely on local fresh-water sources for production processes and obviously each mill releases treated wastewater back into either freshwater or marine ecosystems.” said Kissack. “We actively monitor the quality of our water discharges as we work towards continuous improvement of our environmental performance and reduction of our ecological footprint.”
