    Annual Progress Report ‐ Calendar 2015 Plan Objectives Sonoco's goal is to reduce the use and release of the above noted substances where technically and economically feasible. Based on currently available information and technologies, there are no technically and economically reduction options currently available for these substance. However, Sonoco will continue to explore and investigate potential options as they arise as part of their sustainability programs. Toxics Reduction Progress The facility’s total VOC rates increased in 2015 from 2014 which resulted in the increase in both of the substance quantities for use and quantities released to the air. The individual chemicals listed above was about the same year-to-year. We can attribute this to closer watch of solvent inventories. Plan Implementation Progress There were no reduction options identified in any of the plans for the above noted substances that were identified as being both technically and economically feasible. As such, there were no timelines presented in the reduction plans for the above noted substances. However, Sonoco will continue to explore and investigate potential reduction options as they arise as part of their sustainability programs. The plant continues to control spills as much as possible and to reduce fugitive solvent loss due to open containers. As there were no anticipated reductions noted in each of the plans for the toxic substances noted above, there were no reductions of any toxic substances during the reporting period that would be attributable to any reduction plan. Certification Statement As of August, 2017, I certify that I have read the reports on the toxic substance reduction pla ns for the chemicals and am familiar with their contents and to my knowledge the information contained in the reports is factually accurate and the reports comply with the Toxics Reduction Act, 2009 and Ontario Regulation 455/09
