Recognition in Sustainability

Energy management

In 2012, the American Forest & Paper Association gave us the Leaders in Sustainability Award for Energy Efficiency. This award recognizes our comprehensive energy management program, which reduces energy intensity
 during manufacturing. We thought that was a pretty good idea, too.

Supporting landowners

In 2014, we were awarded the Forest Landowners Association's Corporate Member Award for our support and enhancement of private forest landowners' programs. Giving back just makes perfect sense.

Certifications Matter

In 1999, we were the first forest products company to achieve third-party certification for our wood and fiber procurement operations through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®). To remain certified, we continually track wood fiber through all stages of production and constantly test our fiber supply basins through independent-party risk assessments. It's hard work, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

Certifications provide guidelines for verifying what good, sustainable forestry is — something we consider incredibly important. That’s why we gladly and actively support these recognized forest certification organizations:

  • Sustainable Forestry Initiative®
  • Forest Stewardship Council®
  • Canadian Standards Association
  • American Tree Farm System®
  • Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification™

Protecting Endangered
Forests

We are the first forest products company to use broad-scale analysis for identifying and mapping endangered forests in the United States. Once these areas are defined and mapped, we won’t source from them unless doing so would actually help improve the habitat for endangered, rare or vulnerable species.

Recycling by the Ton

GP Harmon Recycling, a Georgia-Pacific company, is one of the largest brokers of recovered paper, buying and selling millions of tons annually. Now that’s a lot of paper.

Actively Supporting Industry
Best Practices

Since 1995, over $55 million has been contributed in support of logger training and landowner outreach through SFI Implementation Committees (SICs). Also, over 130,000 logging professionals have participated in SFI-approved logger training programs — and we’re still counting.
