GEORGIA-PACIFIC CHAIRMAN HONORED WITH 1993 VISION FOR AMERICA AWARD

 ATLANTA, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- T. Marshall Hahn Jr., chairman of Georgia-Pacific Corp. (NYSE: GP) yesterday was awarded the 1993 Vision for America Award from Keep America Beautiful Inc. for his leadership and personal commitment to advancing national awareness of effective solid waste management and environmental stewardship.
 "I want to thank Keep America Beautiful for this very meaningful recognition, but do so on behalf of the employees and directors of Georgia-Pacific, for I view this award as a tribute to the dedication and efforts of the entire Georgia-Pacific team," Hahn said. "Our company is committed to using our resources wisely, to manufacturing our products in an environmentally responsible manner and to ensuring there will be trees for future generations. It's a charge we all take very seriously -- from the office of the chairman to the employee on the production line to the forester in the field. It's this attitude of shared responsibility that has enabled Georgia-Pacific to move forward in our pursuit of environmental excellence."
 Georgia-Pacific has a long-standing concern for the quality of the environment in which it operates. The company invests millions of dollars each year for reforestation, source reduction and pollution control equipment and facilities, as well as in educating the public on topics such as forestry, wildlife habitat and recycling.
 "Georgia-Pacific has helped millions of Americans to understand proper solid waste management and we are pleased to honor Mr. Hahn's leadership for their efforts," said Roger W. Powers, president of Keep America Beautiful. "This is a perfect example of the private sector's role in educating both grassroots America and industry so responsible solid waste management can be supported and implemented."
 Keep America Beautiful is a non-profit education organization dedicated to improving waste handling practices in American communities. Founded in 1953, Keep America Beautiful presents its Vision for America Award annually.
 Hahn, 66, formerly chief executive officer, will be retiring as chairman of Georgia-Pacific on Dec. 2, 1993, but will continue as a director.
