New Leaf Paper, the industry leader and most recognized brand for high-quality, environmentally superior printing, retail and office papers, is proud to announce that it is certified by the Small Business Administration (SBA) as a Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB). Already a certified B Corp, the company not only focuses on helping the environment by developing the most high-recycled content paper products in the market; but they are also committed to empowering women and promoting diversity in the workplace.
WOSB certification signifies that a company is at least 51% woman-owned and is a small business per the SBA’s requirements. New Leaf Paper exceeds these standards by not only being owned and controlled by women, but by also having a staff that is 80% female.
“New Leaf Paper has a truly unique story in that we have a winning trifecta when it comes to positive environmental and social impact; first by being the leader in sustainable printing papers, then a founding B Corp, and now a certified Women-Owned Small Business,” said New Leaf’s President and CIO Yen Lam. “This certification demonstrates our commitment towards encouraging women to pursue their career goals and make a positive impact in the world. It also benefits our customers by supporting and helping them achieve their diversity initiatives.”
New Leaf Paper continues to excel under its women-run leadership team. The company’s commitment to environmental stewardship is evident as they continue to develop new 50-100% post-consumer papers for printers and publishers. New Leaf’s products are all made in North America and directly impact the environment by diverting waste from landfills and protecting trees. By using one ton of New Leaf’s 100% Reincarnation Matte over virgin paper, customers will save 17 trees, 19,500 gallons of water and 11,000 lbs of solid waste. New Leaf strives to create products that are beneficial not only to the environment, but to its workers, customers, and overall community.
