Wood pellet producers in Canada are committed to environmental sustainability, and demonstrate that commitment by sourcing responsible fibre from sustainably managed forests and transparently sharing information on our operations and our practices.


Port of Prince Rupert

On Jan. 14, the Government of British Columbia announced a $25 million contribution to a significant expansion project at the Port of Prince Rupert. The $250 million project is funded through a mix of public and private investment, and will expand the Ridley Island Export Logistics Platform to improve the port’s ability to transload pellets and other resources products shipped by sea aboard container ships. It’s a move welcomed by the pellet sector for efficient logistics and transportation to market, and it’s good news for our customers in Asia who rely on responsible, renewable and clean energy from pellets to achieve their greenhouse gas (GHG) targets.
