Levi Strauss & Co. Prefers FSC
Levi Strauss & Co. has launched new Sustainable Forest Products Procurement Policy stating their preference for FSC-certified products for all of their product packaging, hangtags, corrugate, construction and decoration materials and furniture.
“This will provide the most credible means of sourcing products from forests independently verified as being environmentally and socially well-managed. FSC Labeled products also carry assurance of chain of custody transparency and minimize risks relating to many controversial sources’ as stated in the report.
Levi's new worldwide policy covers all wood and paper products purchased by the company and mandates that at all paper contain a minimum 30% post-consumer recycled content. For forest products that do not contain recycled content, Levis will strive to procure 100% of these products from FSC-certified sources.
