The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, easily identified as PEFC on a white and green label on PaperOne™ carton boxes, is an international non-profit and non-governmental organization that provides independent, third-party certifications to ensure the sustainable use of forest resources through:
Sustainable Forest Management certification
Recognises operations that maintain a forest's ecological, social and economic values.
Chain of Custody certification
Closely monitors each step of the supply chain, from forest to customer
PaperOne™ has attained both certifications, ensuring that PaperOne™ products come from legal, traceable and environment sustainable sources.
