Today, worldwide consumption of paper is nearly 328 million tons annually, with paper still a key commodity used in every industry on the planet.
Paper making is a resource-intensive process. Its production involves pulp from trees, energy, water, minerals and chemicals, and produces waste and by-products that can damage the environment.
That’s why making and using paper in a manner that places the needs of our planet first is so vital.
To really understand the overall impact of paper making, and to know how to manage each step of the process for the most positive environmental outcome, a thorough Life Cycle Assessment must be completed. As the leader in the creation and manufacture of thin paper - opaque papers whose lighter weights are inherently better for the environment than heavier papers - Bolloré Thin Papers is the first paper manufacturer to undertake a Life Cycle Assessment. And today, we apply the learning from that process to every product we create and every part of our business.
