Company reinforces a “top down” commitment to environmental sustainability

Brian Maloy has joined the company as Manager of Environmental Services. In this role, he will be dedicated to the environmental health of the company and surrounding community.

Mr. Maloy joins Monadnock from FiberMark North America, Inc., where he served as Environmental Health and Safety Manager and was fully responsible for the company’s regulatory programs at the Brattleboro Vermont facility. Prior to this, he served as Environmental Manager at Seaman Paper Company.  Mr. Maloy holds an A.S. in Environmental Sciences from Berkshire Community College and B.S. in Natural Resources from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

“I am delighted to appoint someone of Brian’s calibre to this role,” said Richard Verney, Chairman and CEO of Monadnock. “While we are committed to sustainable innovation and remaining ahead of this curve, there is always more work to be done. His experience will help push our sustainable and environmentally-conscious business practices to the next level.”

Monadnock has adopted numerous sustainability practices that that benefit the company and surrounding community. For example, Monadnock made the decision to implement ISO 14001 in 2004, an international series of standards related to environmental management — something no other paper company of its size had done.  On the supply side, the company gets 50 percent of its energy from its own low-impact, run-of-river dams on the neighboring Contoocook River, and has repowered one of the facilities to increase output by 20 percent.  The company also voluntarily greens up 100 percent of its electrical consumption with renewable energy certificates.

“I am excited to join a company that has been long recognized for its focus on sustainability and commitment to comprehensive energy and environmental leadership programs,” said Maloy. “Monadnock’s environmental stewardship extends far beyond the innovative products it makes into its day-to-day business practices and is also demonstrated in its commitment to the local community.”
