CARBON NEUTRAL PAPERS
Embrace Your Commitment
to Sustainability
PROTECTING OUR CLIMATE AND FORESTS
One of the key features of our SAGE line of pulp and paper
products is that they are “manufactured scope 1 carbon
neutral” and independently certified to a recognized chain of
custody standard. Using SAGE products allows you to show your
commitment to the important global issues of climate change
and mismanagement of forests.
THE WORLD’S BIGGEST CHALLENGE
Climate change is the long-term alteration of temperatures and
weather patterns caused by increasing carbon levels. We know
carbon emissions come from burning fossil fuels, but carbon is
also released with harvesting of the world’s forests. Scientists
predict that unless we take immediate action on a global scale,
the Earth could warm by as much as 6 degrees F in the next 80
years, wiping out polar ice, raising sea levels and creating massive
droughts and flooding.
PAPER EXCELLENCE IS PART OF THE SOLUTION
Since 1990, we’ve reduced our carbon emissions by 66%. That
translates to almost 1 million tonnes of carbon annually –
equivalent to taking 225,000 cars on the road.
If you’ve wondered about committing to more products that
protect our environment, now is the time. Switching to more
responsible products is urgently needed for our planet, and
for future generations. Fortunately, it’s a lot easier to make
the responsible choice without compromising quality.
Our Sage products are produced using fibre from sustainably
managed forests and are made with 100 percent third-party
certified fibre. Sage papers are manufactured scope1 carbon
neutral, an accomplishment made possible through decades
of steady reductions in direct carbon emissions at our mills.

We rely on professional, independent third parties to verify that

Paper Excellence maintains numerous collaborative relationships
with Indigenous Peoples throughout North America creating
well-paid local jobs and securing fibre for our mills. Every year, we
grow 6 million seedlings in our Canadian nursery for replanting of
7,500 acres of softwood forests.
We have not finished our carbon reductions project. We have
additional work planned, and will share the details as we progress.
Carbon emissions occur at every step of the paper supply
chain from the forest floor to the customer’s door. We
have control over our direct fossil fuel purchases (the ones
that drive scope 1 carbon emissions). We do not have
much control over emissions associated with raw material
sourcing and transporting to the mills, transporting
products to customers or converting finished products as
those scope 2 and 3 (indirect) actions are handled by other
organizations. So we are dedicated to what we can control,
and in doing so we can offer a competitive advantage to
our SAGE partners.
We Are Committed to
Scope 1 Carbon Neutrality
We Have a Stringent
Forest Fibre Policy
Carbon offsets are voluntary activities that neutralize
carbon emitted by one party by reducing the emissions of
another. Common offset projects involve renewable energy
like wind or solar power generation, energy conservation
or reforestation. We select initiatives and partners carefully
when choosing offsets, opting only for those able to deliver
actual, permanent and verified solutions.
One hundred percent of our forest fibre comes from well-
managed, renewable North American forests. We have
chain of custody programs in place at all of our mills to
confirm the pedigree of the fibre, its location of harvest
and compliance with applicable forest legislation and
third-party sustainable forest management standards.
All SAGE products are available with PEFC, SFI®, or FSC®
certification, and are currently assessed as low-risk under
our Due Diligence Systems.
PROJECTED ANNUAL CARBON REDUCTIONS
(reduced carbon intensity of the specific process or equipment)
Our ongoing low-carbon journey will be accelerated by
financial support awarded to Paper Excellence Canada in
2021 by the CleanBC Industry Fund, a provincial government
program that invests a portion of carbon tax revenues into
businesses working on emission reduction projects.
In addition, we are also exploring opportunities to capture
our biogenic CO2
emissions which would allow our mills to
become net carbon sinks.

We Help Highlight Your Support
of Climate and Forest Protection
Today 85% of our total energy use comes from renewable
sources like hydro power and biomass fuels. Historical
carbon reductions have been achieved by:
FUEL SWITCHING
Most of the company’s emissions are tied to using fossil
fuels. Using clean, biomass fuel (sawmill leftovers like
bark and wood shavings) and hydro power contributed
significantly to our reduction. We’ve invested hundreds of
millions of dollars to upgrade wood waste boilers to switch
from fossil energy.
ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Reducing the amount of energy used to manufacture
products accounts for further reductions in our carbon
footprint.
EQUIPMENT EFFICIENCY
Improving the efficiency of our equipment with capital
replacement and closure of old, inefficient infrastructure.

2021 WAS RENEWABLE

Accomplishing Great
Things Together
Globally Recognized Forest
Certification Standards
At Paper Excellence, we believe we can accomplish great things
by working cooperatively, transparently and safely with others.
This includes teaming up with external special interest groups that
share our goals. We have been at it for more than 20 years and it’s
become clear that working with others not only creates good, but
also changes who you are. We’re proud that many of our partners
have influenced and changed the way we see the world.
We maintain chain of custody certification with multiple, globally
recognized voluntary certification schemes. These chain of custody
certifications enable us to track fibre from its point of origin through
to delivery to a customer. Assuming that a customer has its own
validated chain-of-custody system, it can carry the certification
assurance right through to end use (including on-product labels).

GREAT BEAR
RAINFOREST
Following controversial forest campaigns in the mid-1990s,
four of Paper Excellence’s coastal B.C. mills have been working
to protect the Great Bear Rainforest through parks and
protected areas and the forest practice of Ecosystem Based
Management (EBM).
This work aims to bring the Great Bear Rainforest into
low ecological risk while balancing the well-being of local
communities supported by forestry employment. This has
resulted in a number of successes:
35% drop in the annual harvesting
350% increase in parks and conservancies
More protection of wildlife habitat, streams and wetlands
Only 0.15% of the forest is harvested each year, ensuring
sustainable forests and healthy ecosystems
