At Nekoosa Coated Products we strive to be at the leading edge of environmentally responsible practices. We are committed to conserving resources, preventing waste, developing eco-conscious products, investing to preserve the environment and complying with environmental laws and regulations in order to continuously improve our operations and products. Our facility maintains triple certification (SFI®, FSC®, and PEFC) which helps protect our precious forests, and all our carbonless base paper is manufactured in an ISO 14001:2004 certified paper mill.
Our research scientists and engineers are continuously searching for greener technologies to incorporate with our product lines and manufacturing processes. Not only are our digital coated papers FSC®-certified, they contain 10% post-consumer fiber. Our ‘less carbon’ carbonless papers are entirely manufactured in Nekoosa, Wisconsin using pulp from the US/Canada border region and raw materials manufactured in the USA, drastically reducing the carbon emissions caused by transportation. All of our carbonless papers are also SFI® certified.
Not only do we offer environmentally responsible paper products, we are constantly working to provide greener synthetic products to our customers. One of our synthetics, MagneCote™, offers a greener magnetic choice because it produces less waste and is biodegradable. Synaps ©, a premium synthetic for offset and HP Indigo presses, can be recycled through Polyester (PET) recycling channels.
Living out and achieving our environmental practices means collaborating and engaging with our customers, manufacturers, end users and our community members. We look to partner with companies that have similar environmental values. When all of our efforts combine, we can make a large environmental impact.
In 2010, our employees created the "Green Legacy, Green Future" logo to signify our commitment to the environment and our community for years to come.
