As part of Sappi Fine Paper North America’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, the company has launched its third-edition eQ Journal. The journal presents Sappi Fine Paper North America's initiatives in sustainability and highlights best practices in this area among the printing, graphic design and publishing fields.
This latest issue of the eQ Journal highlights Sappi’s Somerset pulp mill in Skowhegan, ME, which has reduced its carbon footprint through a major capital project; and how a strategic partnership between Sappi’s Cloquet Mill and the University of Minnesota Extension Service, Carlton County By-Products Program, has helped local dairy farmers make their soil more viable through the reuse of lime mud and boiler ash, byproducts from pulp and paper manufacturing that are typically landfilled.
Sappi Fine Paper North America distributes 25,000 to 30,000 tons of these byproducts to local farmers in the Cloquet area annually, saving them over $1 million per year in soil amendments while significantly reducing landfill volumes. In addition, eQ Journal 003 shares examples of how savvy industry leaders have strengthened their bottom line, by embedding sustainability into the foundations of their businesses.
