58 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE MAY 2021 PORT BURY APER I dyllic Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia is home to a company that, through hard work and determination, has turned the odds in its favor to become a significant economic engine for the eastern part of the province. Port Hawkesbury Paper, located along the south- western coast of the island, is a supercalendered paper manufacturer with deep ties to local communities and an unwavering commitment to protecting and preserving the environment. As one of Canada’s largest paper manufacturers, the company is on a mission to grow sustainably by investing in renewable energy sources and carbon-light manufacturing processes. Striking a delicate balance between growth and sustainability is not always easy, and most companies see it as an either/or situation.

To achieve this, the company must first contend with the challenges of an evolving paper market, along with an emerging post- COVID-19 “next normal” world.
