About the PPGTP:
In 2009, the Government of Canada took decisive action to improve the sustainability of pulp and paper mills by creating the $1-billion Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program (PPGTP). Now, three years after its launch, the PPGTP has fully achieved its objective. This program has significantly improved the environmental performance of Canada’s pulp and paper industry through a record level of investment in green technologies. Pulp and paper facilities have been transformed, opening up access to new revenue streams from their production of renewable energy while reducing costs through energy efficiency improvements.
