Atlantic Paper emphasizes paper products from Environmentally Responsible Resources. This is our commitment to the Environment and to You.
Atlantic Paper recognizes that leadership in the paper industry carries a responsibility to the environment and, in particular, to conserving the world's natural resources. Atlantic Paper fully supports those responsible paper manufacturing, recovery and environmental management practices that promote sustainability, and result in long-term economic and environmental benefit. We are committed to being good stewards of the environment, promoting the sustainable use of our natural resources and encouraging the use of paper products made responsibly from those resources. Our Practices: Education. We will educate our staff, suppliers and customers about our commitment to the environment and promote awareness and accountability on environmental issues. Continued Improvement. We will continue to look for opportunities to improve our environmental policies. We will set and work toward achieving aggressive company environmental goals. Fiber Sourcing. We care about our forests and the paper products made from our forests. It is our commitment and our challenge to promote sustainable forestry and recycling in order to meet the needs of today without compromising the ability to meet the needs of future generations. Paper Recovery & Recycling. We will encourage our customers and the public to recycle paper. Paper products are highly recyclable and we recognize that recycled paper is an important raw material supply for the paper industry. The Right Mix for Paper Products and the Environment. We recognize that recovered paper is a valuable raw material for the paper industry and suitable for use in certain grades of paper. We believe the fiber content and composition of each grade of paper should be driven by consumer end-use requirements that include the strength, brightness, stiffness, cost and other properties of paper.
