Guilford Of Maine Cites Environmental Improvements

During the first quarter of 2001, more than 75 percent of raw materials were made from recycled or
renewable resources at facilities owned by Guilford of Maine, Guilford, Maine. Just five years ago,
recycled and renewable materials made up less than 1 percent of the companys purchases.Reducing our
environmental footprint means taking both small steps everyday in our traditional way of doing
business and large leaps in product and process innovation. We are pleased that we started the year
with significant, demonstrated progress on both fronts, said Paul Paydos, vice president, technical
services.Guilford also achieved the lowest water usage per unit of production and the lowest
first-quarter energy usage per unit of production since the company began to measure the
environmental impact of its material, energy and waste streams in 1996.
