The following offers a view of our annual performance in important areas of environmental and social responsibility. We monitor key metrics for fiber, emissions, energy usage and the impact of our operations on air, water and solid waste. We use this data to set improvement goals for our operations and interactions with key stakeholders.

Sappi North America continues to operate well below permitted emissions levels associated with on-site energy production in the combined heat and power plants at our Cloquet, Somerset and Westbrook mills.

NOx and SO2 emissions are slightly up over the prior year but are consistent with historical performance levels. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are down over the prior year and equivalent to our best historical performance. Improvements on GHG emissions are a result of less purchased power, less natural gas usage and increased biofuels (black liquor and woody biomass) at the Somerset and Cloquet mills.
