Climate Change and Energy

Powering our operations from sustainable energy sources

Oji Fibre Solutions is a large user and producer of low carbon energy. More than three quarters of the energy used in our operations is from renewable sources, including wood processing residues, kraft black liquor and geothermal steam. Furthermore, purchased (grid) electricity from within New Zealand is predominantly renewable.

We constantly strive to reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency throughout our operations.


Water consumption

We use both surface and ground water in our operations. Our largest sites, manufacturing pulp and paper are almost net zero users, due in part to the moisture content of the wood we process (50% by weight), abstracted water is returned back to the catchments after processing and water treatment.

We continue to investigate means of reducing abstracted water consumption.


Effluent discharges from all our sites are subject to permit requirements. Our largest sites operate sophisticated effluent treatment systems. They are regularly monitored and reported for a range of parameters including total suspended solids, biochemical oxygen demand, phosphorus, nitrogen and colour.
