Our Focus

In the year 2000, Horizon realized it was time to recognize and formalize our already strong commitment to sustainable forestry and the environment. It was a time when the Green trend was starting to pick up speed around the world. We watched the global embrace of all things environmental and thought, “Huh, that’s pretty much how we have been operating since day one.” We know there are many different bodies out there attempting to measure our industry’s standard of being environmentally sound. We realize their intentions are good, but fear they are lost in the muck of rules and regulations. We like to do things our own way.

We love our forests and for us, without a doubt, they are our future. We have always operated in a way to make an enhancement, not a detriment. But in our minds the entire effort of doing good work, and working well requires way more than just taking good care of our wooded lands.

Please take a minute to review our focus and pledge. Horizon’s Evergreen program applies to everything we do: from our raw materials, to our production, our people, our communities, our ethics and our honesty.

And so, Horizon’s Evergreen Initiative became our official, formal statement of our beliefs and practices. It is still in the forefront of our focus and going strong.
