Environmental mission and strategy (ESG)
Respect for the environment underlines Uniboard's entire manufacturing process. Our environmental policy is based on the sustainable use of natural resources and was implemented with the health and well-being of our employees, customers and the community in mind.
Our environmental audit program helps us stay abreast of changing rules and regulations while identifying potential risks in our operations. Long before environmental concerns became mainstream, Uniboard was in the forefront by recycling post-industrial wood waste otherwise destined to be burnt or sent to land fill.
Today, we continue to ensure the proper use of wood fiber waste into value-added and environmental friendly products. Uniboard recuperates and reuses post-industrial and urban wood waste to reduce wood fiber consumption and land filling.
In partnership with our customers, Uniboard developed lighter products with outstanding physical properties that reduce our carbon footprint and help reduce CO2 emissions in production and transport. Concerning urea formaldehyde, Uniboard constantly strives to reduce emissions from its products and meet and exceed voluntary industry standards. All our NU Green products meet CARB Phase 2 and TSCA TITLE VI emissions standards, the most stringent environmental guidelines in North America. In fact, our NU Green portfolio goes above and beyond CARB 2 and TSCA TITLE VI standards as our NU Green products are also offered in NAF and ULEF options. NU Green products help builders achieve LEED certification, the most recognized program to promote ''Green'' buildings.
All Uniboard mills are ECC certified (Eco-Certified Composite by the Composite Panel Association (CPA)). In addition to meeting the emissions requirements imposed by Carb Phase 2 and TSCA TITLE VI, our Mont-Laurier, Val-d'Or and Sayabec mills have exceeded the assessment criteria for the carbon footprint, responsible wood sourcing, the sustainable use of wood fibers, and the use of recycled/recovered fibers and local resources.
