Organizational Structure / Creating Social and Environmental Value

A Pulp Business That Coexists With the Local Community

Alpac Forest Products Inc., which is 70% owned by MC, produces wood pulp in Alberta, Canada. Since commencing operations in 1993, Alpac has championed a management policy of working to coexist in harmony with the local community and the natural environment. It strives to minimize environmental impacts by using proper equipment and proactively implementing sophisticated environmental policies, while also engaging in continued dialogue and partnership with the local community. Moreover, the company works to protect biodiversity and forest ecosystems by such measures as conducting ongoing monitoring of wildlife inhabiting the forest. As a result of these efforts, the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)* has certified the company's Forest Management Area since 2005. (License Code : FSC-C022642)

Power for Alpac's mill is generated by burning biomass, such as wood waste, created in the pulp production process. Surplus power is then supplied to the Alberta power grid as green energy. Alpac also actively employs local people. In these and other ways, it is working actively to coexist with the local community.

* Forest Stewardship Council: One of the independent institutions that certifies forests around the world. It is a membership-based not-for-profit organization jointly established by various environmental groups, concerned business representatives, citizens groups, forestry certification institutions and other parties. World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world's largest environmental NGO, recommends FSC certification as the most trusted forestry certification.

By using a logging method that replicates forest loss from a bush fire, forests are made to regenerate in a form close to the natural regeneration cycle.
