Fiblon is continuing its work on responsibility by changing over to the use of FSC- certified raw materials in the manufacture of tabletop products from tissue paper.
Fiblon has made a policy decision to change over entirely to FSC-certified raw materials in production. The decision affects Softlin Basic products, which use tissue paper as raw material.
FSC® Chain of Custody certification ensures that products labelled FSC®-certified comply with environmental, social and economic responsibility throughout the entire production chain.
The idea to extend FSC certification to all its tissue paper tabletop products is not a new one. In spring 2014, Fiblon received certification of its control system so that in future it could manufacture FSC®-labelled products. Now the time is ripe to change over entirely to a forest-certified manufacturing programme.
“Fiblon wants to be at the forefront of adopting an accountable approach in business operations. Earlier, we had already changed over to using only tissue paper certified with the Nordic Swan label. Therefore, naturally the step for us is to change over completely to FSC®-certified tissue paper in our production chain. Our decision means that we can promise our clients guaranteed responsible tabletop products in the future. Therefore it will also be easy for our customers to implement their own responsibility,” says Mikko Ekberg, vice president at Fiblon.
At the moment, there is a period of transition as we change over to certified production. By autumn, all the Softlin Basic tabletop products manufactured by Fiblon will be FSC® certified.
What is FSC?
Established in 1993, FSC® is the first international forest certification system. FSC, or the Forest Stewardship Council, is an independent, non-profit global organization, which promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of forests.
FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) certification ensures that the raw material used to make the products is derived from responsibly managed forests.
