The signing of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) agreement in Paris last month is a victory for many who have been laboring for decades. It is miraculous that the world, as represented by 154 nations, has committed to address what is threatening us all – the devastating effects of global warming.

How to Exceed Your 5-year Emissions Goal One Year Early

For several years, Sappi North America has had a major focus on the reduction of fossil fuels and the emissions associated with combustion.
Article

Intensity is a term that describes the usage of resources for, or output from, the manufacture of a set unit of product. We exceeded an aggressive five-year goal of a 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity in just three years and are now working to reduce energy intensity. Overall, our performance in 2014 against these key emissions metrics was in line with 2013. A markedly colder winter impacted fuel consumption, slightly increasing our sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions, but we remain significantly below the industry average as reported by AF&PA.
