Higher recycling rates, lower CO2 emissions and commercialisation of the world’s first 100% bio-based carton mark a successful year on several fronts
March 16, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Tetra Pak made further progress towards its 2020 environmental goals during 2014, passing several important milestones in its journey to develop sustainable products, reduce the environmental footprint of the value chain and increase recycling.
LAUSANNE, Switzerland, February 18, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Tetra Pak can now supply Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) labelled packages from anywhere in the world, having received FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) certification for all of its converting plants and market companies. It represents one of FSC’s largest multi-site certifications, covering a total of 92 facilities worldwide.
Why FSC certification is the strongest approach to preserving the world’s forests
Count to 10. In that short amount of time, our planet lost nearly five football fields worth of forest land. From the products we use, to the air that we breathe, the preservation of these precious ecosystems has an impact on many aspects of our daily lives.

September 9, 2014 /3BL Media/ - By 2050 we’re likely to need three times more wood than we do today, yet forests are fighting for their lives as the ground they stem from is being sought for alternative uses.
The key to keeping forests standing is to make them viable so they can compete with alternative land uses that require them cleared. Sustainable wood extraction as a forest conservation strategy has long been recognised as one way to achieve this.
