Spotlight: Reducing International Paper's GHG Emissions Across All 3 Scopes

Wednesday, 25 January 2023 14:45

NORTHAMPTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 25, 2023 / We are committed to investing strategically in pursuit of our Vision 2030 goals. In 2021, for example, we converted the coal-fired power boiler system at our Rome, Georgia Mill to natural gas. According to the International Energy Agency, natural gas produces about 40% fewer GHG emissions per unit of energy compared to coal; the gas-fired boiler will reduce the mill's GHG emissions by nearly 90,000 metric tons per year.

This $2.36 million project is just one example of the strategic, sustainable investments we are making on the road to 2030.
