ALPHARETTA, GA. (June 17, 2008) - Neenah Paper is pleased to announce that Avalanche White, its 99+ brightness white sheet, is now FSC Certified. This blue white sheet is a sleek and sophisticated option within the realm of environmentally favorable papers, and is available in CLASSIC CREST, CLASSIC Linen, CLASSIC Laid and CLASSIC COLUMNS Papers-all made Carbon Neutral. Offered in a wide range of weights, including a 130lb. Double Thick Cover, Avalanche White is a highly appropriate choice for identity and communication design.
This announcement immediately follows the consolidation of all Neenah Paper Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified products under a single chain of custody certification number (SW-COC-000885), including those products previously certified under Fox River Paper.
"Since 2006 we have more than doubled our number of FSC Certified offerings from our existing product line. This sends our customers a strong message: sustainability doesn't have to mean sacrificing color, weights or finishes, and now brightness," says Meredith Grant, Product Manager for Neenah Paper.
Neenah Paper has continued to grow its FSC portfolio at a rate of 100% each year while simultaneously developing solutions to reduce its environmental footprint, specifically by reducing and offsetting carbon emissions. Neenah Paper's innovative green initiatives have established it as the industry leader in environmentally responsible business and manufacturing policies and practices.
In response to the rising demand for premium, third-party certified papers made with fiber from well-managed, responsible sources, Neenah Paper is committed to expanding its FSC, Carbon Neutral and Green Seal Certified product offerings. These are exciting milestones in Neenah Paper's mission to make meaningful reductions in its environmental footprint.
