"The BO Paper Group has a policy of respect for the environment at each stage of production, based on the Integrated Management System (IMS).
A reference to best practices in the global marketplace, the IMS encompasses the requirements set by the international management standards, which focus on quality, environmental protection, occupational safety and health, and social responsibility. All employees, suppliers, service providers and customers are involved."
Care begins in industrial processes when wood from sustainable forests is debarked and its fibers are separated by a basic thermal-mechanical method with a minimal use of chemical treatment.
With regards to the waste of wood, it is used in boilers as fuel for energy generation. And the gas emissions from the plant meet the limits required by environmental legislation.
In another step, the effluents go through a high efficiency biological treatment plant. This allows the water used in the production of paper and pulp to return to the rivers at a point prior to the source, with quality above what the legislation requires.
Concerned with environmental preservation, the BO Paper Group still protects native fauna and vegetation on its lands. The Group has programs to prevent and control any future environmental impacts arising from its manufacturing activities.
