UPI began tracking CO2 emissions before it became a California state mandate in 2008 and so was well prepared to report this information once it became the law. Emissions are based on production and therefore will vary with economic conditions.

99% of UPI’s CO2 emissions come from natural gas use and are tied to the efficiencies of burners used throughout our mill. With the newest state of the art burners available on the market installed throughout our process lines and the allocation of personnel committed to ensure proper combustion performance, we feel confident we have minimized our emissions.
