Partner Profile
Cascades Tissue Group (Away-from-Home Division) is a leading producer of 100 percent recycled sustainably-manufactured towel and tissue products for the away-from-home market. Cascades' commitment to minimize environmental impacts drove it to become the first tissue manufacturer in North America to use third-party certified wind energy for product manufacturing. This is noteworthy since the EPA lists the paper industry as the 4th most energy-intensive industry in the US. As such, the carbon impacts associated with paper manufacturing are very significant. The company's commitment to use renewable energy for its North River® and Cascades® brands allows it to avoid over 39 million lbs of CO2 emissions per year. By using the environmental calculator at http://www.afh.cascades.com/en/distributor/environmental-benefits, the company's end-use customers can quantify carbon and other environmental savings for North River and Cascades branded products. These commercial and professional customers are "increasingly in need of sustainable towel and tissue solutions which we can provide," says the company.
