Cascades Fine Papers Group’s "green mill" in Saint-Jrme has received the Forest Stewardship Council certification FSC Recycled. This certification authenticates that the product has 100 per cent post-consumer content, taking the whole process into account, from the raw material to the consumers.
"Cascades Fine Papers Group," noted Denis Jean, president and CEO, "is the first and only Canadian fine paper manufacturer to be awarded the FSC Recycled Certification. It is the result of outstanding teamwork between the management team of the mill in Saint-Jrme and the team at the de-inking mill in Breakeyville, whose pulp is also certified FSC Recycled."
The Forest Stewardship Council is an international, non-profit association whose membership comprises environmental and social groups as well as progressive forestry and wood retails companies, working in partnership to improve forest management worldwide.
FSC Recycled certified products are New Life DP100, Rolland Enviro100, Rolland Enviro Edition100 and Rolland Inspiration Ecofibre. They are available on making orders under certain conditions.
