- SUSTAINABILITY -
Planted forests are a considerable part of wood supply to the industry. Although they cover less than 7% of the total forest area of the planet, they supply about 50% of this raw material to the industry.
Projections indicate that if the population growth rate remains steady, the world's population should reach 9.1 billion people by 2050. Such growth, coupled with changes in purchasing power, will boost demand for commodities.
The use of total biomass energy can double or even triple by 2050, depending on policies and mechanisms to encourage a low-carbon economy and the use of renewable energy.
Sustainability guides all actions and intentions of Rolling Papers of America. We see it as the ability to allow growth cycles to regenerate, which means building foundations for expanding our business while incorporating competitive operations, social and environmental responsibility and quality relationships.
