Resolute yesterday announced a partnership from 2016 through 2019 with Marianne St-Gelais, world champion and winner of three Olympic medals in short track speed skating.
For some youth the summer means time at the lake learning about the outdoors and survival skills, but for 48 Aboriginal youth in Northwestern Ontario it means an opportunity to gain life skills and exposure to different industries and opportunities in the region.
Resolute is partnering once again with FPInnovations, a world-leading R&D organization, to develop new, eco-friendly products that have the potential to create renewable, biodegradable and cost-effective alternatives to petroleum-based products for use in the construction, automotive, mining, oil and other sectors.
Resolute’s business and sustainability strategies are interdependent. Our company’s vision, our corporate values and the way we do business every day reflect our commitment to sustainability. The latest example of our approach is that Resolute and Serres Toundra, the largest greenhouse complex in Quebec, have joined forces with CO2 Solutions to reduce carbon emissions at our Saint-Félicien pulp mill and reuse captured CO2 at the adjacent greenhouse. This first-of-its-kind initiative in our industry is not only good for the environment, but will also lead to significant economic and social benefits in the Lac-Saint-Jean region.
Resolute’s Grenada (Mississippi) newsprint mill was recently recognized by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), a regional provider of electricity for industries and local power companies, as the top performer for the most kilowatt hours saved in 2015 among its directly-served customers.
In June of this year, TVA announced that Grenada had saved 32,000,000 kWh through its thermomechanical pulp inter-stage screening project, a three-year initiative that has saved a total of 85,100,000 kWh (about the same as the total electricity used by 8,800 homes in a year).
