Our environmental management system
Internationally recognized best management practices
Our EMS provides a rigorous management structure that is applied in all Tembec manufacturing and forest operations under our control. The EMS is an internationally recognized set of environmental best management practices that guides all activities that have a relationship with the environment. The EMS facilitates the achievement of important sustainability objectives and programs, such as maximizing environmental performance in manufacturing, and maintaining Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification in all forestry operations.
All Tembec manufacturing and forestry operations are required to maintain an ISO-14001 certifiable EMS. In 2011 the Temiscaming, Matane, and Skookumchuck operations were certified to the standard. Certification is planned for Chetwynd in 2012, as well as the three Québec forestry business units.
