Preserving the Environment for Future Generations
Conservation and innovation are necessary to sustain the Earth’s natural resources, which is why we are working to create value and develop sustainable, global solutions.
Creating products that conserve resources, improving manufacturing processes, practicing responsible forestry management, and utilizing environment, health and safety management systems are just some of the ways we protect the environment and foster sustainability.
Complying with environmental laws and policies and obtaining voluntary certifications ensure that we are committed to our forests and facilities.
Monitoring conservation and recycling practices, using alternative energy sources and implementing environmental management systems help us search for new ways to improve our environmental performance.
Implementing efficient production practices and adopting new innovations, such as the use of biomass and green chemistry, all contribute to lessening our environmental impact.
Achieving triple chain-of-custody forestry certifications at our North American facilities provides assurance that our products come from non-controversial sources.
As the world’s top purchaser of abaca fiber, Glatfelter adheres to Rainforest Alliance and Sustainable Agriculture Network standards to ensure responsible harvesting of this “super fiber.”
Developing eco-conscious products, using alternative fibers and investing in new technologies, help Glatfelter and its customers reduce their environmental footprint.
Reducing our Environmental Footprint through Innovation
Maintaining the quality of the environment is an important aspect of what we do at Glatfelter. We adopt new innovations to lessen environmental impact by developing products like NatureSolv™, organically based and used in all our carbonless brands, to provide customers with environmentally responsible alternatives. Looking at product lifecycles, improving air quality, meeting compliance guidelines and increasing the use of renewable biomass fuels, helps reduce our ecological footprint and improve everyday life.
