Zero Waste

forestry facts

Did you know that since the early 1990s, Canada’s pulp and paper mills have reduced their GHG emissions by 67%? We did it by converting wood chips, sawdust, and bark — materials that might otherwise be considered “waste” — into bioenergy to power our operations.

Now we’re looking outward. By using every part of the harvested tree, Canadian forestry can help solve some of our most pressing climate change challenges. Be it the biomass that will help reduce our country’s reliance on fossil fuels, the wood fibre-based bioplastics that can replace the single-use plastics currently flooding our landfills and oceans, the wood lignin substitute being used to replace carbon-intensive bitumen for our roads, or the mass timber being used to build more sustainable communities, sustainably sourced, responsibly managed and 100% renewable wood products can help grow a more circular economy.
