PaperWorks Industries Inc., a North American packaging provider, has released its first annual public sustainability report online, titled, Sustainability: It’s A Part of our Heritage.
Compiled according to the Global Reporting Initiative Guidelines, the report measures PaperWorks' economic, social and environmental performance in 2010 and 2011, as well as outlines challenges and opportunities presented by the integration of four different companies.
The report also features PaperWorks' successes, including reductions in emissions, water and energy usage. For example, PaperWorks achieved a 2.5 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions over one year and surpassed the company's five-year corporate goal of reducing water intensity by 5 percent in one year, reducing absolute water consumption by 25 percent and water intensity by 16 percent. The company also made an investment to implement energy-efficiency upgrades at two of its facilities.
