At Resolute, we report our business and sustainability results together. Our business and sustainability strategies have been expressly developed to align our efforts in environmental stewardship and social responsibility with our business objectives. This approach reinforces our vision that profitability and sustainability drive our future.
Our business strategy is focused on transforming Resolute into a more sustainable organization, one that can generate consistent value for shareholders through a competitive portfolio of manufacturing assets and a solid presence in long-term growth markets. This includes, on the one hand, a gradual retreat from certain paper grades and, on the other, using our strong financial position to act on opportunities to diversify and grow.
Our corporate strategy relies on three core themes:
maximizing value generation from paper
growing in pulp, tissue and wood products
integrating our pulp into value-added, quality tissue
In order to successfully execute this strategic plan, we also recognize the need to maintain a disciplined approach to capital allocation, as well as a level of financial leverage and flexibility that supports the evolution of our transformation.
Our sustainability strategy, based on a balanced approach to environmental, social and economic performance, is designed to enhance our competitive position by focusing on:
improving resource efficiency, which helps control fiber, fuel and power costs
moving beyond regulatory compliance and environmental incident management to differentiate the company as an environmental supplier of choice
positioning Resolute as a competitive employer
building solid relations in our operating communities
We are one of few producers capable of supplying seven different grades of market pulp, all with unique properties that make them ideal choices for particular applications.
