Saint-Jérôme, Quebec - Cascades' offering of environmental papers continues to grow with the CheckSecur family now FSC® certified. This environmentally friendly family of check papers offers security, protection and innovation in every fiber.
Consistent with Cascades' focus on manufacturing the most responsible products possible, the CheckSecur family includes the Platinum Enviro, which contains 100% FSC certified post-consumer fiber and is accredited Processed Chlorine Free by the Chlorine Free Products Association. In addition, all products of the CheckSecur family are manufactured using local and renewable biogas energy.
Coveting this distinction is a desire to meet market needs and to complete Cascades' already impressive offer of ecological fine papers. A pioneer in recycling and manufacturer of its own deinked pulp, the company has undertaken long ago to become the leader in the ecological production of fine papers, both in the choice of raw materials and in manufacturing processes. This environmental awareness is a valuable contribution to the protection of forest, air, water and soil.
"As a leader in both environmental fine papers and security papers, it was a natural evolution for us to offer North America's first FSC certified security product line as a standard. This is why the CheckSecur family offers security, protection and innovation in every fiber", said Normand Champagne,General Sales & Marketing Director.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, non-profit association whose membership comprises of environmental and social groups and progressive forestry and wood retails companies, working in partnership to improve forest management worldwide.
