As the U.S. paper industry continues to evolve over the next decade, the companies that thrive will be those that transform their business models to adapt to changing market realities.  A mature domestic market, rising input costs, increasing electronic communications and low-cost global competition will challenge U.S. papermakers to innovate beyond their traditional boundaries.  Believing that the production of renewable bioenergy will be the transformational lever that keeps U.S. paper competitive, Verso Paper Corp. is leading the way to a more energy-focused future that is both economically and environmentally sustainable.
