ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Being eco-friendly is our number one priority

At Double A, sustainability begins with using sustainably grown trees, which mitigates global warming. We source certified wood or fast-growing Paper-Tree.

This process of sustainable sourcing also involves continuous replanting of the Paper-Tree by farmers in rural communities, which creates a positive social impact by creating jobs, providing sustainable livelihood and a secure source of income.

Utilizing Biomass Power: No Waste is Wasted

We make sure that we foster sustainability from the tree we harvest, where the trees are planted, to recycling the residual waste, in order to make the best use of resources throughout our production process.

To make the most use, all waste (wood bark, knotted wood, chips, lignin and sludge) from the pulping process is channeled to the power plants for biomass electricity generation, which in turn fuels the mill and supplies energy to nearby communities.

Conserving water: Capture the Rain!

The 35 million cubic meter giant manmade reservoir was built to function as a catchment area to collect rain water runoff that helps prevent floods and also provide for Double A mills’ water requirements. We leverage technology to minimize our water consumption throughout the production process. To make the best use of resources, we use our recycled water to irrigate the trees around the mill.

SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

We’re dedicated to bettering the lives of people in the communities who share their home with us.

Not only we support farmer families with additional income from cultivation of the Paper-Tree on their unused land, we also spearhead school funding programs by planting trees on unused land around schools. We then buy back the trees once they’re mature, and schools use the money to buy educational supplies and upgrade classrooms.

Our goal is to better the communities we serve, both in Thailand and around the world.

ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY

We make every effort to exceed the expectations of our key shareholders – government bodies, non-profits, NGOs, banks and financial institutions, trading partners, employees, customers and the community.

By helping farmers earn more income, providing much-needed funds for schools and offering global employment opportunities, we’re doing our bit for economic growth and sustainability.
