Sustainability SourcingDouble A Green Office Week

A leader in sustainable manufacturing, Double A’s policy of environmentally friendly milling operations means that every sheet of Double A  paper and all of their product lines are produced with the perfect balance of product quality and environmental care.

Double A’s operations include the ‘cradle to mill gate’ lifecycle assessments, internationally recognized certifications, and advanced technology that are essential for the sustainable manufacture of pulp and paper.

Double A ensures that its environmental credentials are current, and works with NGOs in Thailand and overseas to support their environmental initiatives. Double A is continuously measuring their own environmental performance against the standard to ensure that every one of their products is manufactured with minimal environmental impact.

Double A’s manufacturing process is founded on the use of raw materials we can cultivate, conserve and generate without interfering with nature and our neighbouring communities.

At Double A, ‘No Waste is Wasted’ because the tree bark, oversize wood chips, lignin and black liquor from the pulp and paper production process become the fuel that generates the 100MW of electricity which is more than enough for the mill. Any excess is sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) to power our local community of 400,000 households.
