Press release from the issuing company

SAINT-JEROME, QC, Feb. 28 -- Cascades was doubly rewarded at the 2nd Environmental Printing Awards (EPA) Gala which was held in Toronto on February 21, by receiving gold for the Most Environmentally Progressive Vendor in Canada and bronze for the Most Progressive Environmental Process on its biogas energy project. It is extremely important that the printing industry reduce its ecological footprint on the planet. Environmental protection programs provide an important ecological lever, as well as economic and social benefits. That is why the Environmental Printing Awards incite companies to increase their level of excellence by creating more effective processes and by maintaining ongoing projects that demonstrate concrete and significant environmental progress. It is because of its global strategy, implemented since its inception to reduce the adverse effects on the environment, that Cascades Fine Papers Group is being honoured today. "This gold award provides for Cascades the proof that the printing industry wants more than just buzz words and marketing campaigns. It is concrete actions that count, specifies Normand Lecours, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. Credibility can only be gained by really doing what we say."
