COMMITTED TO IMPROVEMENT

We understand it’s not enough to simply say we are sustainable; we must be able to prove it by setting the right goals and transparently reporting on our progress toward meeting these goals. 

Our company has undergone a tremendous amount of change since we first adopted a comprehensive sustainability strategy in 2010. In 2014, we aligned our goals with a new company vision and focus. In 2016, we doubled our timberlands base via a merger and divested our former cellulose fibers business. In 2017, we completed the sale of our timberlands and manufacturing business in Uruguay. Our company looks quite different than it did eight years ago. 

Today, we are focused on three sustainability goals: our economic performance, creating a great place to work for our employees and being good stewards of our environmental resources. We continue to revisit these goals and further align and adjust our metrics as necessary.
