CHICAGO (January 18, 2016) – Iggesund Paperboard Inc. has joined Two Sides North America, the non-profit organization that promotes and encourages the responsible production, use, and sustainability of print and paper.
“We are very pleased to welcome Iggesund to our network and Mr. Neal Haussel to our Sustainability and Marketing Committee. Iggesund is a global leader in paperboard manufacturing and their sustainability record is a great fit for Two Sides,” says Two Sides North America President, Phil Riebel.
"Contrary to popular perception, the pulp and paper industry is, and will continue to be, a big contributor to mitigating climate change. The forests managed by the industry store massive amounts of carbon; the main culprit in global warming. Iggesund is proud to be one of 300,000 forest owners that manage Sweden’s forests which have nearly doubled in volume in the last 90 years. As such, we are delighted to stand united with the industry through Two Sides and applaud its determination in setting the record straight,” says Neal Haussel, Sales Director & Marketing Manager, Graphics USA, Iggesund Paperboard Inc.
