Sustainable Forestry and the Circular Economy

We are advancing the circular economy—from sustainably harvested trees, to fiber-based packaging and through the recycling process. In fact, it is the demand for fiber-based products that drives the demand to keep forests as forests with all their many benefits, including supporting biodiversity and absorbing carbon.

We are a member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Network and support their work to promote the circular economy and mobilize systems solutions at scale globally.

Certifiably Sustainable

Third-party fiber certification is one of the most important ways we demonstrate our commitment to sustainable forestry. Our multiple certifications are a testament to our responsible, sustainable and transparent sourcing and provide assurance that the paper and packaging products we make contain virgin fiber from well-managed forests. We hold ourselves and our partners to the highest standards--for our customers, our communities and the environment. We are proud to work with these forest certification organizations.
