Canfor Corporation and Canfor Pulp Products Inc. jointly released their 2023 Sustainability Report. The report highlights the companies’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) activities and tracks performance against established goals.

“While 2023 was a challenging year for Canfor, we continue to advance our sustainability strategy, which is a cornerstone of how we do business,” said Don Kayne, President & CEO of Canfor Corporation. “As we share the results of our sustainability report this year, I am incredibly proud of our people, who remain laser focused on safely delivering the quality products our customers expect while integrating sustainability into all that they do.”

Highlights of the 2023 Sustainability Report

  • Moving towards our goal of becoming net-zero by 2050, including establishing a target to reduce our scope 3 GHG emissions by 25% by 2030 from a 2022 baseline year. This builds on our previously established target to reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions by 42% by 2030 from a 2020 baseline year. Our emissions targets were submitted for validation with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We also developed a Climate Change Strategy to prioritize and focus climate-related initiatives across the company.
  • Progressing our diversity and inclusion initiatives, with 50% of our North American new hires coming from under-represented groups and 98% of our salaried employees in North America completing our Inclusion and Diversity Awareness Training.
  • Maintaining responsible forest stewardship practices, with 100% of our Canfor-managed forests certified to SFI® or FSC® Forest Management Standards, and 100% of all sourced wood in our North American wood products operations certified to SFI Fibre Sourcing Standard.
  • Advancing Indigenous partnerships, with almost half of our Canadian operating area covered by agreements with Nations. We continue to work closely with Indigenous communities to find opportunities for mutually beneficial partnerships.
