Like you, we care. 

What is LCA

What is an LCA?

An LCA is a systems-based quantitative method for evaluating the environmental impact of a product, from raw material extraction and processing, to manufacturing, distribution and disposal. 

Our LCA conforms to ISO 14040-14044 standards for LCA studies with comparative assertions intended to be disclosed to the public. That means results and conclusions were subject to a formal peer review process. 

LCA paper


We have conducted a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to assess and manage the footprint of our papers, demonstrating that Sustana Enviro paper grades have the smallest environmental footprint when compared to the average papers in North America.  

We can help you manage your own paper footprint. By using Sustana papers, you can achieve a substantial improvement in your ecological balance sheet.

As leaders in sustainable innovation and environmental stewardship, we are firmly committed to better understanding our footprint – and actively working to make it as small as possible.
