Partnering with the planet to ensure a sustainable future.
Seaman Paper's sustainability strategy is designed to continuously improve our environmental and product safety processes, management systems, and performance. This approach enables us to operate in a manner that promotes environmental sustainability, product stewardship, and energy-efficient operations. By producing sustainable paper sourced from responsibly managed forests or recycled materials, we aim to further reduce our environmental impact and promote a circular economy.
Our Sustainability Strategy
We benchmark ourselves environmentally against our industry with the AF&PA (American Forest & Paper Association) and join them in their “Better Practices, Better Planet” program. We have aligned our goals with theirs as a reference point, assuring a shared vision and allowing us to gauge the effectiveness of our efforts.
As a manufacturer of sustainable paper products, we believe our choices today should leave the forest we depend on better off in the long term. It takes healthy, thriving forests to supply our customers with sustainable paper and eco-friendly packaging products.
Responsible sourcing of fiber is not only a responsibility; it’s a necessity for being a long-term, reliable supplier of sustainable paper for our customers around the world.
Seaman Paper has made, and continues to make, a significant effort to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels to lower greenhouse gas emissions. Over the past 20 years, we have successfully executed a series of energy improvement projects, many of which resulted from upgrading equipment, from more energy-efficient lighting and motors to steam recovery and on-site renewable energy generation. The cumulative effect results in higher levels of renewable energy, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and reduced energy consumption and costs.
When it comes to sustainable paper manufacturing, trees are commonly associated with natural resources, but water is equally vital in the process. As a water-intensive business, we recognize the significance of responsibly managing this essential resource. Ensuring efficient water consumption, recycling, and proper treatment are critical aspects of our commitment to environmental responsibility.
At our facility, we are dedicated to optimizing water usage through advanced technologies and best practices. By implementing efficient water management strategies, we aim to minimize our environmental impact and contribute to the conservation of this precious resource. Through our continuous efforts to prioritize water sustainability, we strive to set a positive example for the industry and inspire others to join us in our journey toward a greener and more sustainable future.
Seaman Paper places a strong emphasis on the importance of waste disposal programs and recycling, recognizing their significant environmental impact. With a commitment to sustainability, we proactively manage our manufacturing waste, implementing efficient practices to minimize landfill waste. Our goal is to find innovative ways to repurpose and reuse materials, ensuring that as little waste as possible ends up in landfills.
By adopting responsible waste management practices, we aim to contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future. Through ongoing efforts to reduce waste and explore beneficial reuse opportunities, Seaman Paper strives to set an example for other businesses in the industry, demonstrating the positive impact that responsible waste management can have on the environment and the community. Our dedication to environmental stewardship drives us to continuously seek ways to improve our waste management practices and uphold our commitment to sustainability.
