Today, being competitive and offering quality products is not enough. Just by looking at our surroundings we realize our duty to be sustainable and manage our actions under what is now known as “green conscience”.
The paper industry has a critical role in this task that concerns us all. Today, thanks to the Mexican companies’ commitment, 87% of the raw material used to manufacture paper is recycled fiber. This is equal to 4.8 million tons a year.
GreenPaper is proud to be a large contributor to Mexico’s standing as the 5th largest paper recycling country worldwide.
Papermaking with recovered fibers helps reduce the volume of waste to be disposed in dumps and landfills. This helps to prevent climate change by reducing the overall level of greenhouse gas emissions would inevitably occur in non-recycled waste streams. All these efforts, as well as the promotion and development of plantations and management of our forests, make the paper industry a sustainable endorser for the protection and preservation of the environment.
At GreenPaper, we are proud to be recognized as an industry leader in sustainable manufacturing by offering a product line that is made with recycled material on 100% of our offerings.
Additionally, we are one of the few companies in the industry that has cogeneration and uses clean natural gas, generating cleaner emissions and thereby reducing our environmental footprint.
We also use recycled water and utilize a comprehensive water treatment process to ensure any discharges back into the water supply are properly sanitized.
Being a steward of the environment is our duty and one that we take very seriously.
GreenPaper is proud to be one of the only recycled paper mills in our region to have earned the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) Recycled CoC certificate. This means that that a minimum of 85% of the wood fiber content is from post-consumer sources, with a maximum of 15% coming from post-industrial sources. FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests and is globally recognized as the premiere standard-setting organization in the forest products industry. Our certification with this organization represents our promise to our customers that GreenPaper is committed to sustainable manufacturing and responsible material sourcing practices.
