Georgia Pacific wins a host of sustainability awards


Georgia-Pacific is pleased to have received an Innovation in Sustainability award for Juno® Technology. The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) has announced the winners of its Better Practices, Better Planet 2030 Sustainability Awards, which recognise outstanding sustainability programs and initiatives in the paper and wood products manufacturing industry.

“This is the first year we are presenting awards in alignment with our new Better Practices, Better Planet 2030 sustainability goals and statement of principles on diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said AF&PA President and CEO Heidi Brock.

“It is exciting to see examples of these goals in action.”

Juno Technology is Georgia-Pacific's ground-breaking waste diversion and resource recovery solution. It is a tried-and-true economical and socially responsible solution that can boost recycling and recovery in the United States and around the world.

“At Georgia-Pacific, we prioritize the development of new technologies that help us use fewer resources, minimize waste, and improve the environmental performance of our products and processes,” said Christer Henriksson, President of Juno, at Georgia-Pacific.

Juno Technology has the ability to recover up to 90% of the materials it processes, diverting them away from landfills and incinerators. These materials, such as paper fiber, plastics, and metals, can then be recycled and reused as raw materials.

“Our goal was to go deeper into the waste stream to capture more fiber for reuse without disrupting current recycling,” said Henriksson.

It takes time, dedication, and effort to develop and market a new technology. We are overjoyed that our Juno team has received this award from the AF&PA.
