We are proud to be an industry leader with state-of-the-art environmental protection technology. Howe Sound Pulp and Paper’s ongoing investment in environmental technology allows us to meet and better all current and foreseeable government discharge standards.
Air quality is monitored on an ongoing basis, and we report the results to the public and the Ministry of Environment. Since the Kyoto baseline year of 1990, Howe Sound has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by over 50%, more than eight times Canada’s target. According to a 2007 report released by the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC), we accomplished the largest reduction in greenhouse gases per tonne of production in the Canadian pulp and paper industry.
