The thermal energy usage to produce many of the grades of paper is offset through buying carbon credits that fund renewable energy or emission-reduction projects.
This type of paper is produced from fibers using alternative compounds as a substitute for elemental chlorine. Eliminating the elemental chlorine reduces harmful by-products.
This type of paper is produced from recycled fibers that were processed without the use of any additional chlorine or compounds.
