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.
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.
Sustainable innovation has been a guiding principle at Seaman Paper since the day our doors first opened. We continue to build a thriving world by unlocking the power of renewable resources to benefit people, our communities, and the planet, and we look forward to continuing this work to meet the needs of tomorrow.
As a manufacturer of 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 paper and packaging products.
Responsible sourcing of fiber is not only a responsibility; it’s a necessity for being a long-term, reliable supplier for our customers.
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 people think of paper manufacturing, trees are often the first natural resource that comes to mind. But water plays an equally important role in the papermaking process.
As a water-intensive business, it is critical that we consume, recycle, and treat the water we use efficiently and responsibly.
Seaman Paper understands the value and environmental impact of waste disposal programs and recycling. We continue to manage our manufacturing waste effectively and continuously look for beneficial reuse opportunities to minimize landfill waste.
For consumers, certifications represent additional guarantees regarding the quality and the source of Seaman Paper products. And for Seaman Paper, the certifications guarantee a high standard of quality and environmental responsibility.
