|Resolute’s company-wide environmental performance is tightly measured and improvements are many. In the past 2 years, Pascale and her team, with strong support from Resolute’s CEO Richard Garneau, have helped drive a cultural shift throughout the company that was embraced by all employees. Among the changes: new policies which better track all environmental incidents that drove a reduction in their number by 19% in 2014, and a further 60% in the first 6 months of 2015; investments to eliminate all use of coal, and significant reductions in use of heavy oil. 72% of their energy now comes from renewable sources and GhG emissions have been reduced by a further 7% since 2013, for a total reduction of 70% since 2000; Certification of all but three operations to best-practice standard of ISO 14001 has been achieved, and the company has initiated tracking of Resolute’s scope 3 GhG emissions, strengthening their commitment to WWF®’s Climate Savers program.|
