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.

  • Continuously pursuing enriching the green cover through its Social Farm Forestry drive
    • Till date in excess of 1,73,000 Ha of land has been planted covering states of Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Maharashtra & Madhya Pradesh
    • On average it has added 14000 Ha annually to its plantation drive by distributing over 60 million saplings to farmers
    • This farm forestry activity since 1990 has cumulatively provided income for over 55,000 farmers
  • Have signed an Emission Reduction Purchase Agreement (ERPA) with the Bio Carbon Fund of the World Bank covering 1608 Ha mainly owned by small and marginal farmers associated with JK Paper's plantation program. This program provides additional income for participating farmers, besides reducing harmful green house gases and global warming
