The pulp and paper industry has some inherent sustainability challenges that need to be addressed. For the sake of the planet and responsible business, tissue manufacturers and converters are taking action in finding opportunities for improvement.
Materials are an immediate concern. Finding alternative fiber sources to conserve forests, and substitutes for plastics — a tissue product packaging mainstay — are key initiatives. However, they aren’t the sole focus for OEMs.
Operationally, tissue manufacturers and converters are gaining clarity around better controlling areas of environmental impact without losing efficiencies.
