Small things we must do,
For people,
For nature.

Each and every person,
each business, each society
can do something for our planet, Earth.

Paper is, in itself, civilization and culture, it is a tool.
Paper changed human civilization and gave rise to new civilizations and cultures.
However, it is also true that paper has harmed our forests, since it is created using the forests of our planet.
Forests are the lungs of the Earth.
For the Earth to breathe, the lungs must be healthy.
Eco-friendliness is one of the major points of discussion in the 21st Century, and therefore businesses and products that harm or pollute the environment are gradually losing their place.
In such a corporate environment, Doosung Paper uses eco-friendly paper to help green businesses.
Doosung Paper uses paper that embodies culture and civilization, leading the way in creating a new paradigm of paper that does not harm nature or ecology system.
In doing so, we participate in the green movement of environmental protection and resource conservation.

From forests to people,
and from people,
to forests again.


Making forests: bigger.
In order to restore forests that have been felled in the papermaking process, we plant and nurture new trees. We continuously manage the forests, and ensure that nature can breathe.

Making paper: reusable
We recycle scrap paper as raw materials for papermaking, supplying new paper.

Making energy : useful
We use the black liquor byproducts of the pulping process as fuel.
