Reducing our energy consumption, one gigajoule at a time!

In the picture, several team members from Cascades Fine Papers Group – Rolland Division at the award presentation.

Every year, we pay tribute to the plants with the best energy performance results from each of the Cascades groups. We may make “green” products, but we still need to ensure that they are produced using the least amount of energy possible! That is why we created the Best Energy Performance awards, presented by the energy action group Cascades GIE.

With approximately a hundred units in operation, we consume an enormous amount of energy, as you may well imagine. Each plant is responsible for reducing its energy consumption through various methods established by the GIE team or by plant employees. Reducing consumption becomes a greater challenge with each passing year, but when it comes to energy efficiency, there is always room for innovation.
