PORTLAND, OR, March 22, 2019 (The Oregonian) -The pulp and paper industry is a major driver of Oregon’s economy – particularly in the rural communities where mills provide more than 4,000 jobs and in excess of$1.5 billion in local economic activity.

These jobs aren’t in Oregon’s largest towns. Some may have only a single stop sign. But their mills offer good paying, typically union-represented jobs with wages and benefits that significantly exceed local standards.

Our pulp and paper mills are proud of the work they do, how they do it, and why they do it. Oregon mills are energy efficient, green mills that utilize all of the best available control technologies. Our power is generated from water, natural gas, biomass and steam. Oregon pulp and paper mills are some of the greenest in the world.
