Sweden: Essity pledges responsible sourcing of fibre

Essity, a leading global hygiene and health company, has pledged for responsible sourcing of fibre in Vancouver Declaration, a public promise made by companies across the globe to work towards more sustainable sourcing of forest products. The Sweden-based company aims to be at the forefront of development in commitments on responsible fibre sourcing.

"We see Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as the most credible certification scheme to meet our sustainability targets and strive to increase the volume of certified industrial wood. FSC is a robust and fully transparent standard that safeguards principles on biodiversity and forest conservation, and we continue committing ourselves to making our business even more sustainable," said Mattias Johansson, public affairs director at Essity and one of the company’s delegates at FSC’s general assembly in Vancouver.

FSC works to take care of the forests of the world for future generations-ensuring there is forests forever. FSC certification helps forests remain thriving environments for generations to come, by helping make ethical and responsible choices at the local supermarket, bookstore, furniture retailer, and beyond.

The Vancouver Declaration allows businesses who use natural products to pledge their commitment to increase responsible sourcing. It also acts as an endorsement of FSC as the supplier of choice for certification of forest products. The Vancouver Declaration has also been signed by other sustainable companies, such as IKEA and H&M.
