Oji Fibre Solutions Takes Significant Step Forward in Sustainability Journey
Oji Fibre Solutions (OjiFS), one of Australasia’s leading producers of pulp, paper and fibre-based packaging, has released its latest Sustainability Report detailing its value in the circular economy and how it is optimising operations for a more sustainable future.
$63 million was invested in transforming the Tasman Mill; increasing production of unbleached speciality pulp products to safe-guard the future of the mill and deliver safety and environmental benefits, including significant greenhouse gas reductions.
OjiFS is set to compliment this with Project Waikato, another large-scale initiative to improve and future-proof wastewater treatment systems at its Kinleith Mill.
OjiFS CEO, Dr Jon Ryder, says “Both of these projects signal our owners support to invest in operations in the region, which allows us to continue to create long-term value and have a positive impact on the future of the company, the environment and our communities”.
Other Sustainability Report highlights include expanded operations in Australia, including a new state-of-the-art packaging facility in Yatala and additional distribution centres on the East Coast, set to support growth in the horticultural and agricultural sectors in Australia.
This is the fourth Sustainability Report since Oji Holdings Corporation purchased the business in 2014.The latest report, and previous versions, can be found at www.ojifs.com/publications
