Green Design


cascades - sustainable before it was fashionable

As noted earlier in this edition of GDUSA, Cascades is the sponsor of our annual “Green Design” Special Report. Appropriately, the text for this edition of GDUSA is printed on the company’s Rolland Enviro100 Satin. This eco-friendly paper contains 100% post-consumer fiber, is certified FSC® Recycled, EcoLogo, Processed Chlorine Free and is manufactured using renewable biogas energy.

Cascades Fine Papers Group

Cascades has recently launched an innovative uncoated fine paper created for inkjet printing: Cascades Enviro Jet™. This paper is unique: it is the only inkjet paper with 100% post-consumer fiber in North America. In addition, it doesn’t make any compromise; it offers print quality that is beyond compare. Cascades Enviro Jet performs well on both pigment and dye ink presses. The treatment applied on the surface of the paper helps the colors to keep their vibrancy. Simply put, it provides the necessary medium to be colorful and productive.

Cascades Fine Papers Group is located in Saint-Jérôme (QC) and is a leader in the manufacturing of ecological fine papers and security papers in Canada. Conscious of the environment, the Group uses 50% and 100% recycled fibers in its products and continuously makes efforts to reduce its ecological footprint on the planet. Long before sustainable development became fashionable, Cascades was putting it into practice instinctively.

The Corporation has always believed that remaining true to its principles is the only way forward. It was, in fact, born out of a form of sustainable development: the recovery of waste paper. Since then, the Corporation hasn't looked back, working continually to improve its practices. Rolland Enviro100 Satin and Cascades Enviro Jet are parts of the Cascades family of high quality environmentally friendly commercial printing papers that also includes Rolland Enviro100 Print, Rolland Enviro100 Book, Rolland Opaque50 and Cascades Enviro Kraft Print. Cascades publishes a Green By Nature™ Blog and recently introduced a new website with improved visual design, straightforward navigation and easy access to content.
