Clearwater Paper Corp. has released its 2023 Sustainability Report, an annual update on the company’s progress against its multi-year sustainability goals. The report also announces Clearwater Paper’s new strategic sustainability framework, “Everyday Responsibility.”

This strategy centers the company’s sustainability work and initiatives on three distinct pillars: resource stewardship, trusted products and thriving people and communities.

“Our new strategic sustainability framework reflects our unwavering commitment to ‘Everyday Responsibility,’ which aligns with Clearwater Paper’s core values, sustainability goals and business objectives,” said Arsen Kitch, president and CEO.

“It serves to guide our present and future actions and helps us communicate with our stakeholders more effectively. Together, we will continue to be a company that customers are excited to partner with, our employees are proud to work for and that our communities can count on.”

In 2022, the company introduced multi-year goals around emissions reductions, resource conservation and company representation. This year’s report, covering the calendar year 2022, shares progress the company has made to date, as well as impactful stories from within the company that exemplify Clearwater Paper’s commitment to “Everyday Responsibility.”

Key highlights include:

  • Strengthening its commitment to greenhouse gas reductions by validating its Scope 1 and 2 and Scope 3 emissions targets with the Science Based Targets initiative.
  • Successfully commercializing NuVo with BioPBS, a cup stock that combines a compostable barrier with a high-definition print surface, the latest example of a Clearwater Paper product that meets high quality standards, yet leaves a smaller environmental footprint.
  • Making strides in fostering inclusivity, diversity and collaboration among the company’s people, including increasing underrepresented groups in its workforce, enhancing policies and benefits and supporting employee well-being and engagement.
  • Reducing safety risk by 26 percent by implementing proactive safety controls and maintaining a safety-first culture.
  • Conducting a new materiality assessment that provides valuable insights to pave the way for future priorities, goals and initiatives.
