Unilever recognizes FSC as ‘Most comprehensive Forest Management Scheme Globally’
Unilever has announced a new ‘Sustainable Paper and Board Packaging Sourcing Policy’ recognizing FSC as the “most comprehensive Forest Management scheme globally”.
The new sourcing policy sets as a goal to source 75% of all paper and board packaging from certified forests by 2015. Whenever possible, FSC-certified materials will be used for virgin fibre needs.
Look for the FSC label on the packaging of Unilever’s portfolio of brands, such Ben & Jerry’s, Breyers, and Lipton Tea.
