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).
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.
