Kruger Products Recognized as a Corporate Knights Future 40 Responsible Leader

TORONTO (News Release) -- Kruger Products, Canada's leading tissue manufacturer, is listed in the Corporate Knights 2017 Future 40 Responsible Corporate Leaders in Canada ranking released today. Now in its fourth year, the ranking recognizes the country's top small and mid-sized companies that are demonstrating leadership in sustainability.

Kruger Products is clearly a company that takes sustainability seriously," says Michael Yow, Director of Research, Corporate Knights. "This is evident from its full disclosure and commendable environmental metrics performance."

"Environmental sustainability is at the core of our business and we are firm in our commitment to setting industry-best targets," says Mario Gosselin, CEO Kruger Products. "Corporate Knights is one of the world's leading editorial sources for clean capitalism and we are honoured to be recognized for our efforts."

Kruger Products' sustainability program, Sustainability 2015, launched in 2010 and has allowed the company to significantly reduce its water consumption, packaging, energy use and Greenhouse gas emissions.

The next evolution of the program, Sustainability 2020, will be released later this year and will push the company to further shrink its environmental footprint. Over the next five years, Kruger Products will work to meet increasingly aggressive sustainability targets and further demonstrate leadership in both the pulp and paper and packaged goods industries.
