We believe that sustainability is the capacity to endure. For humans, sustainability is the long-term maintenance of responsibility, which has environmental, economic and social dimensions, and encompasses the concept of stewardship - the responsible management of resource use.

Mercer is committed to conducting our operations and developing our products to the highest environmental, health and safety standards. Our efforts to protect and sustain our environment, communities and employees are key to the long-term existence of our business and industry. These commitments are vital given that Mercer holds a FMA covering 2.9 million hectares.

The most stringent standards govern our planning and operations and we consistently work within the air and effluent emissions, energy conservation and green power production standards. Our efforts have been recognized by various governing bodies with certifications of these achievements of standards.

We are committed to further enhancing our performance in the areas of health and safety through new strategic developments and continuous improvements.

"Our customers are also engaged in their own sustainability challenges and recognize the value of having suppliers who have sound environmental platforms, low carbon footprints and safe operations, such as Mercer. By aligning themselves with us, they are finding they are better able to position their products in their markets to satisfy the demands of their customers."

- Eric Heine - Mercer's Vice President of Sales and Marketing, North America and Asia
