Glatfelter (York, PA), a global supplier of specialty papers and engineered products, is launching a new section of its website dedicated to the topic of sustainability. Drawing on the strong Glatfelter heritage of over 145 years in the paper-making industry, the new sustainability area highlights Glatfelter’s efforts to conserve resources, prevent waste, and foster environmental, economic and social sustainability for the benefit of future generations.

The new site targets three major areas that relate to the company:

- The environmental section details performance measures, production practices, sustainable forestry initiatives, and environmentally responsible products.

- The economic section highlights capital investments, economic positioning, financial performance and new product development efforts.

- The social section features such topics as safety, wellness, training and community support.

Users can also learn about the company’s commitment to sustainability, the paper lifecycle and Glatfelter's policies and certifications.

“Sustainability is about conducting business in ways that protect and enhance the environmental, economic and social resources that are entrusted to us. By accepting the responsibility to operate our business in a sustainable manner, we protect the ability of future generations to enjoy a quality of life equal to or greater than our own,” says George H. Glatfelter II, chairman and CEO.
