With the recent volatility in residual fibre supply, we have experienced more downtime in our pulp mills than in recent years. This presents a particular challenge when managing energy consumption, as pulp mills require consistent, stable operations to maximize efficiency.
However, through low-carbon solutions, innovation and technology, we seek opportunities to responsibly manage our energy consumption, even amid challenging periods. We work closely with governments, utility organizations and other stakeholders to optimize our processes and conserve energy, and we continually seek effective and innovative approaches.
Our Goal: We will optimize energy intensity across our business while expanding utilization and production of low-carbon energy solutions.

Given the nature of our operations, Canfor’s facilities in British Columbia and Alberta generate renewable energy that can be used internally and, where possible, can even be sold to local hydroelectric grids.
