JK Paper & Environment

Our thrust on environment is visible in various eco-friendly processes at our plant sites for production of pulp and paper. This is done by adopting modern technology and process innovations.

The farm forestry development program, started in 1991, has created employment and livelihood opportunities for significant number of people even as the company sources its raw material requirement from the farm forestry on low-productive land.

Through its R&D work, we have developed a large number of improved varieties. These provide 2-3 times higher yield as compared to traditional seed route plantations.
