Atlantic’s three commercial paperboard and fine paper converting facilities are all True Zero Waste certified!
TRUE (Total Resource Use and Efficiency) Zero Waste certified facilities divert a minimum of 90 percent of their waste from landfills, incinerators, and the environment.
TRUE is a zero waste certification program verified by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), an independent organization that provides third-party verification and credentialing of systems and business practices relating to sustainability.
Atlantic’s TRUE certifications prove our organization’s commitment to building a healthy, sustainable future.
As an increasing amount of waste places a strain on resources and communities, sustainable resource management and waste reduction practices create positive environmental, health, and economic outcomes.
Special thanks to Jud Douglass, Atlantic’s Zero Waste Supervisor, for overseeing the certification of our three solid bleached sulfate (SBS) paperboard and fine paper converting facilities.
Congratulations to everyone who made this possible!
