We are committed to produce cartons in the most sustainable way. As a converter of board materials into cartons for the pharmaceutical industry, we have a 100% focus on mono-material products that are fully recyclable and renewable.
For many years, we have been purchasing base materials that are sourced from forests that are managed in a sustainable way. In recent years we have received requests to provide our cartons occasionally on FSC certified board, which has led to our decision to become FSC certified. In 2020 we received this certification, which enabled us to not only produce cartons on sustainable board material, but also produce FSC certified orders.
Recently, we have noticed an increased market demand for certified sustainable material and we expect this trend to continue. Therefore we have decided to move our entire board material to FSC certified materials as of Q1, 2022. In this way we further support the FSC initiative and the CSR objectives from our customers and moreover ourselves. Needless to say, we will phase out current (non-FSC) board stock first to avoid waste of materials.
FSC board material has 100% identical specifications compared to the current ‘conventional’ board we are using to produce cartons. While FSC is only an administrative certification and has no impact on product quality or specifications, we guarantee that there is no impact on run ability on packaging lines.
