Multimedia with summary
Our progress in diverting materials from landfills has accelerated dramatically since 2013. In fact, waste sent to landfills from pulp and paper mills was reduced 24 percent, as we coordinated a more consistent, disciplined, company-wide approach to defining, measuring and reporting byproduct streams.
Our goal is to reduce total solid waste sent to landfills 40 percent by 2020 from 2013 levels. How will we achieve this?
