10 Years of FSC™ Certification

Jul 4, 2017 11:00 AM ET

This year marks our 10-year anniversary of FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council™) certification, and we are proud to take the opportunity to share some of the impressive results we have had to date.

The FSC™ label on our cartons is a sign that they comply with FSC™ requirements relating to forest management and the traceability of the wood fibre in the paperboard. The first Tetra Pak package to be labelled with the FSC™ logo was delivered in 2007 and since then, the numbers have grown exponentially, and today we boast a total of 280 billion FSC™-labelled packages, delivered in over 90 countries and to more than 3,000 brands.

As a major user of paperboard, we have a responsibility to ensure the world's forests are managed in a socially just, environmentally appropriate and economically sound way. We are working hard to ensure 100% of the paperboard we use is certified. 

In our work to raise awareness of FSC™, we support initiatives around the world that increase understanding of sustainable forestry and encourage consumers to make responsible choices.
