The Sastalama-based packaging materials manufacturer Carccu® received the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) forest certification in April 2023. Certification promotes sustainably managed forests, taking into account the whole production chain: PEFC-certified forests meet certain ecological, social, and economic standards, and, in addition to forest management, the certification covers wood handling, processing, and end product.
PEFC label rare on paper packaging
The PEFC label on paper packaging means that the packaging material comes from a PEFC-certified forest. The label tells consumers and businesses that the wood used comes from forests managed according to sustainable forestry principles.
Work on obtaining PEFC certification started at Carccu last year as part of the company’s ISO 9001 and ISO 14 001 quality system certification efforts.
“Not many packaging manufacturers have PEFC certification,” says Lasse Borg, Managing Director of Carccu. “The certification is proof from an external audit that we are acting responsibly. Most of the raw materials we source are PEFC certified, and we are constantly working to get the label on more products.”
