Verso Paper Corp. Awards Verso Forest Certification Grant To PalletOne Of Maine

Verso Paper Corp. (NYSE:VRS) today announced that PalletOne of Maine has been selected to receive a Verso Forest Certification Grant. The grant will enable PalletOne to seek independent Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC ®) Chain of Custody (COC) certification for its pallet mill operation in Livermore Falls, Maine.

PalletOne already purchases a portion of its wood supply from FSC-certified forests in New England and sells residual wood chips to Verso’s paper mill in nearby Jay, Maine. Achieving COC certification will allow PalletOne to increase the amount of FSC-certified material available to Verso and ultimately to Verso’s paper customers who prefer FSC-certified products. In addition to the grant, Verso will provide technical expertise to assist in the certification process.

“Verso has a long history of promoting sustainability by supporting a variety of certification initiatives within our wood supply chain,” said Verso Fiber Supply Manager Jim Contino. “We launched the Verso Forest Certification Grant program last year to increase certified fiber available to our mills, and the PalletOne project is well suited to our criteria. PalletOne is a trusted and long-term chip supplier to Verso’s Androscoggin Mill and we are pleased to award this grant as part of our ongoing effort to increase the availability of certified fiber in the marketplace.”

“We could not complete this certification without Verso’s funding and technical expertise,” said PalletOne Vice President Donnie Isaacson. “We are pleased to preserve FSC credits through our sawmill that create value for Verso’s paper customers while developing COC certification within our organization.”
