We started working towards more sustainable forestry practices in 2010. In collaboration with the Rainforest Alliance, we developed a global Responsible Paper Sourcing Commitment, which we updated again in 2014. Our main goal is to source 100% of our paper and board packaging and catalogue paper from either credible certified sources or recycled materials. In certain markets, where FSC™ certification is not available, we allow other certifications that meet our minimum requirements, such as Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
You can find our FSC™ license code here.
We use derivatives of both palm oil and palm kernel oil in some of our cosmetic products. Since 2010, we have been a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). We aim to source 100% Mass Balance certified derivatives for the raw materials used at our own manufacturing sites by 2025. If Mass Balance certified derivatives are not available, we use RSPO Book & Claim Credits.
*Source is defined as the paper mill.
