Resolute Has Reduced Absolute GHG Emissions by 83% Since 2000

In 2011, Resolute made an ambitious commitment: to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (scope 1 and 2) by 65% by 2015, compared to 2000 levels. Thanks to significant efforts deployed across our operations, we reached our goal ahead of schedule. But we didn’t stop there – at the end of 2019, we reached a new high of 83%. That’s the equivalent of taking over 2 million cars off the road!

Resolute continues to seek opportunities to reduce emissions and increase efficiencies. In 2019, in addition to achieving a 65% reduction in indirect emissions (scope 2) at our Coosa Pines (Alabama) pulp mill through the modernization of the cogeneration turbine, we increased operational stability and made improvements to the power boiler at our Saint-Félicien (Quebec) pulp mill; optimized the electrical power boilers at our Alma and Kénogami (Quebec) paper mills; improved control of combustion on the boiler at our Baie-Comeau (Quebec) newsprint mill; and completed the optimization project at our Thunder Bay (Ontario) pulp and paper mill for a 20% reduction in direct emissions (scope 1).
