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 grades 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.

Sustana’s environmental footprint

Impact on climate change 

Sustana Enviro paper grades’s climate change impact is mainly attributable to emissions from paper decomposing in landfills and the fuel needed to collect used paper. The energy source we use to manufacture our papers –  hydroelectricity – help to greatly reduce the impact on climate change.
