CAMPAIGN: Sustainability Report 2015

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

All pulp and paper mills in North America use and treat water in accordance with comprehensive environmental permits. Our North American mills use only surface water sources (rivers and lakes) and return treated water to the same primary source. (At Cloquet, we return the water to a publicly owned treatment facility, which then returns to Lake Superior.) We return a high percentage of the water we use, resulting in a minimal water footprint. Water that is “consumed” in our operations is primarily made up of water lost to the environment due to evaporation during the paper drying process and a small amount of moisture contained in our finished products. A Lean Six Sigma project at our Somerset Mill that focused on improved brownstock washing contributed to a significant reduction in Total Suspended Solids (TSS).
