Certified Paper Packaging Resources
Sustainable packaging is becoming ever more important on shoppers’ priority lists, forcing brands and retailers to rethink their packaging strategies and demand for paper packaging is growing.
Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) certified paper, and wood-fibre derived packaging, benefits from strong environmental credentials, growing demand, and exciting innovations being introduced every year within the sector.
This makes FSC and PEFC certified paper packaging an attractive option for businesses looking to lessen their operational impact on the environment and enables them to stay relevant amongst their customers and a growing wave of conscious-consumers.
The forests that cardboard and paper packaging come from make positive contributions to the world as beautiful landscapes, places to visit and enjoy, places for wildlife to thrive, protecting soil and water, and as carbon sinks to combat climate change.
