Profit through Innovation – Best practices in responsible paper sourcing

Starting at the source: responsible forest management

Responsible forest management is the cornerstone of responsible paper sourcing. There are various certification bodies, of which the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) are amongst the most well-known. The stringent standard sets out 10 principles and a series of related criteria to which forestry operations must adhere if they are to receive certification.

The roots of the FSC can be traced back to the early 1990s, when a diverse group got together to discuss setting up the world’s first forest certification organisation. Comprising environmental NGOs, indigenous peoples, forestry organisations as well as big retailers, they laid out agreements on what standards would be required and how the organisation would be orchestrated. In the 14 years since its establishment in 1993, over 92 million hectares of forest have been certified in 76 countries1. While the driver for the creation of the FSC may have come from non-regulating bodies, consumers are showing a greater awareness for these products. In 2003 alone, the amount of paper produced to FSC standards in Europe quadrupled.

Paper, Packaging and Printing – Sustainable Forestry Initiative

SFI Paper, Packaging and Printing

Packaging factory

Retailers, printers, publishers, distributors and merchants are turning to SFI-certified papers and packaging materials to meet the growing demand for responsibly sourced forest products. SFI “percent content” and fiber sourcing labels make sustainable forestry less anonymous. They provide is a visual cue telling you and your customers the fiber used to produce paper and packaging products – from envelopes to juice boxes to magazines – is from a legal and responsible source.

SFI Inc. is one of the world’s largest forest certification programs, and it is internationally recognized and accepted. This offers the advantage of a steady supply of certified products to meet the growing consumer demand. By choosing SFI-certified products, companies of all sizes can use their buying power to improve forest management while sending a clear signal to customers they care about forests.

While recovered fiber is an attractive choice, it usually only makes up a small percentage of any paper product. An SFI label completes the equation by confirming the rest of the wood fiber is from a responsible source. There are also SFI labels available to indicate the amount of recovered fiber content in a certified product.

Profit through Innovation – Best practices in responsible paper sourcing

Best practices in responsible paper sourcing PDF Print E-mail

Written by Mondi Business Paper Service, 2007

The paper industry today is at the forefront of the sustainability movement, making great changes to reduce emissions and waste. Mondi Business Paper Service looks at the advancement of environmentally responsible sourcing in printing and publishing.

The trend for products that reflect responsible environmental practices is becoming a defining feature across all industries. Increasing awareness of environmental practices is changing the way in which both consumers and manufacturers approach buying and production. As a result sustainable management has become a core business issue for many organisations. This includes minimising the amount of waste that is produced, reducing energy consumption and making more efficient use of resources.

Not so very long ago, the notion of environmentally responsible sourcing of paper products for printers and publishers hardly came into question. Recycled papers didn’t offer the optimal whiteness needed for professional printing and the forestry industry was facing stark criticism for clear-cutting great expanses of forest.

Today the paper industry, long targeted by environmentalists, is at the forefront of the sustainability movement, making great changes to reduce emissions and waste. It has become a model for other industries, with NGOs, manufacturers, social groups and forestry companies working together to effect change.
