What is Sustainability?

We believe it is the process of conducting business using practices that protect and enhance the environmental, social and financial resources needed by future generations to enjoy a life equal to or greater than our own. The steps we take are just some of the ways Glatfelter goes Beyond Paper®.

Balancing our environmental, economic, and social objectives is crucial to developing sustainable, global solutions. Consistent with our core values, Glatfelter is committed to continuous improvement in not only our products, but in all that we do to conserve resources, prevent waste and foster environmental, social and financial sustainability for the benefit of future generations.

Our Heritage

For over 150 years Glatfelter has been changing to meet the evolving needs of our stakeholders. The way we conduct business—to enhance and protect our reputation and prosperity in the long-term—is evidence that we take seriously our responsibility to our employees, our customers and our changing world.

Environmental Responsibility

Environmental Responsibility
Looking at our products’ lifecycles, incorporating recycled content and creating products that conserve resources and improve everyday life are some of the ways we protect the environment. Air emission methods, forestry management, water discharge practices and production processes are all examined. Reducing waste and increasing our use of environmentally-friendly raw materials and renewable fibers, as well as renewable biomass fuels, helps reduce our environmental footprint.
