FSC and PEFC Certifications

Forest Management certification, such as FSC & PEFC, ensures that forests are managed to high standards covering social, environmental, and economic issues.

Some 10% of the global forests are certified so the supply of credibly certified raw material for all our operations remains a challenge.

Certification provides the consumer with the assurance that forest products originate from responsibly managed forests.
