Buckman Named Finalist in the 2018 Sustainability Awards

Buckman, a global company that specializes in innovative chemical and smart solutions for the pulp and paper industry, was named a finalist in the 2018 Sustainability Awards program by the Business Intelligence Group. The Sustainability Awards honor those people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.

Buckman was recognized for its Vybrant® enzymatic technologies which reduces the use of traditional chlorine-based pulp bleaching chemistries. The enzymatic bleaching technologies work in both the pre- and post-bleaching processes at a mill.

“Buckman proactively looks to replace harsh chemistries with more sustainable chemistries,” said Dr. Bernard Janse, Buckman’s Director of Research and Development. “Today, Buckman is a worldwide leader in using enzymes in our core industries.”

“We are proud to name Buckman as a finalist for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will have a significant impact on our world. Congratulations!”
