SUSTAINABILITY ISN’T AN
OPTION, IT’S A RESPONSIBILITY

BETTER PLANET | BETTER BUSINESS | BETTER COMMUNITY

WE’RE UNAPOLOGETICALLY FOCUSED ON THE FUTURE

That’s why we create green, environmentally-friendly products, use recycled materials whenever possible, and aim to make our products recyclable and/or compostable.

We are also committed to being a lean, green machine when it comes to our manufacturing processes and environmental footprint, because making the world better makes our business better.

Want the nitty gritty on our goals, environmental results, pulp products, certification and more?

REDUCE ENERGY CONSUMPTION

We have set a goal to reduce our energy consumption by 20% by 2020, based on
our 2012 usage. We measure this as Gigajoules per tonne of production. In 2012, our
measurement was 18.18 GJ/ton of production. By 2020 we need to be at 14.54 GJ/
ton of production. Since 2012, we have reduced energy consumption per tonne of
production by 8%. This is an annual energy reduction of 61,659 gigajoules, which is
the equivalent to the amount of energy used to supply electricity to 5,000 homes for
an entire year. CKF has many ongoing programs and projects that will continue to
reduce energy and we are on track to achieve our goal of a 20% reduction from our
2012 usage by the year 2020.

ALL PRODUCTS TO BE
RECYCLABLE OR COMPOSTABLE

Our goal is that 100% of the packaging produced by CKF is recyclable or
compostable by 2020. In 2015, 58% of the packaging we produced was
compostable and/or compostable. Our moulded pulp packaging is already
100% recyclable and compostable plus our PET packaging is 100% recyclable.
Polystyrene is technically recyclable and a very valuable commodity.
We are currently working with industry associations on increasing accessibility
to Polystyrene recycling Blue Box programs. In the recyclable category,
Polystyrene Foam is collected in many provinces, and report approximately
50% rates of access to recycling for this material.

REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT

The GHG (Green House Gas) measurement contains both the emissions from our
production facilities and the transportation used to distribute product to our customers.
Our original facilities goal to reduce the total carbon footprint by reducing
the tonnes of GHG emissions per tonne of production was set in 2012. We have targeted
60% reduction over base year by 2020. In the 6 years since we launched
our sustainability mission, we have reduced GH emissions by a staggering 50.2%.
Our transportation goal is to reduce total GHG emissions per tonne of product shipped.
We have targeted 40% reduction over 2012 (base year) by 2020. CKF uses various modes of
transportation to get our product to market. Optimizing transportation routes is good for us,
for you, and for the environment!

WASTE DIVERSION

CKF is on the move to zero waste! In the last several years,
we have been able to capture more waste items, such as organics,
plastics and wood and divert the materials away from the landfill.
Between 2014 and 2017, we increased our waste diversion by 50% to,
approximately, 370 metric tonnes. This constitutes diversion of
approximately 25% of our total waste to landfill generated,
which already achieves our 2020 goal! Now, we are working towards
our 2025 goal of 50% diversion rate.

SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

CKF has enjoyed a long history of community investment,
as an integral component of our Social Sustainability Mission is people.
We have set goals for Employee Engagement and Community Involvement.
Local communities are important for our employees and our business,
so we participate and assist in developments. Safety has always been
and will continue to be an important corporate goal of CKF.

SAFETY

We pride ourselves on a proactive safety culture
that is reinforced and supported at all levels of the company.
Our Hantsport location maintains the company record of
seven consecutive years of no lost time accidents and
over a year in our Rexdale plant. Great accomplishments,
but our commitment to safety is on going as we work towards
a zero incident record.
