About Us Sustainability

Investing in Our Future: Crusader Cares

Crusader is committed to the responsible management of our world’s natural resources. Part of that commitment is reflected in the way we manage our facility.

We go beyond compliance with environmental regulations. Investments in new waste-handling equipment permit us to recycle over 99% of material waste in our process, and Crusader is at the forefront of developments in eco-friendly coatings, replacing traditional non-biodegradable coatings and laminates used in a variety of industries. In partnership with our customers and suppliers, we are making a positive contribution toward a sustainable future—a future Crusader feels passionate about.

FSC® and SFI® Certified

Crusader has certifications from two independent, non-governmental, nonprofit organizations — the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®). Headquartered in Bonn, Germany, FSC® was established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests. SFI® works with conservation, community, government and industry partners to improve sustainable forest management in North America and fiber sourcing globally. Visit the FSC® website or the SFI® website to learn more.

Crusader is dedicated to providing the best possible products and services to its customers with material that is renewable, reusable, recyclable, biodegradable and sustainable. Crusader continues to adhere to the highest standards of product quality and environmental responsibility. Most grades of paper and paperboard sold by Crusader, including many of our laminated and coated products, are available as FSC®- and/or SFI®-certified.
