Innovia Films has announced that it now uses only Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)-certified wood pulp in the manufacture of its NatureFlex product.
The forestry certification applies to both Innovia Films’ cellulose production plants in Cumbria, UK and Kansas, US.
Innovia Films product sustainability manager Dr Lucy Cowton said: “This product claim for our NatureFlex films follows on from a successful gaining of Chain of Custody certification in 2014. It is the next step in the journey to reassure customers that our wood pulp is from responsible, legal and traceable sources.”
Innovia Films procurement director Ian Robinson added: “Customers worldwide are increasingly interested in the origin of the raw materials in the products they buy. In the case of our cellulose films business, wood pulp is the principal raw material employed and this certification proves it originates from responsibly-managed forests.”
