An award of excellence for environmental action

Patsy Inglis, Manager, Processes & Environment, Windsor Mill

The Windsor Mill was awarded the Eastern Townships Environmental Excellence Award in the Medium and Large Enterprise category on October 23 during the 19th Gala des Prix d’excellence en environnement.

The mill was recognized for the four projects it undertook in 2011 under the Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Project. These initiatives have enabled it to reduce its greenhouse gas production by 10%, or the equivalent of 2,350 fewer cars on the road annually. It also helped it reduce its water consumption at the pulp mill by 1.9 million m3, and to decrease its natural gas consumption by 6 million m3. All this was achieved within a few short months.

This community award acknowledges the commitment of Windsor Mill employees, who are constantly innovating to achieve the best possible environmental performance.
