We see FSC as offering a credible universal standard and we actively encourage our customers to display the logo on their packages. Since the introduction of the FSC label on our first package in 2007, we have produced over 400 billion FSC-labelled packs, 92 billion of which were delivered in 2017 alone.
For certification of the Chain of Custody of our own operations, we have chosen to work with the Rainforest Alliance, one of the world’s largest FSC-accredited certification bodies.
• The FSC directly supports the sustainable forest management target under SDG 15, while also contributing to 34 targets under 10 other SDGs
• Although figures vary across markets, one out of every two consumers globally recognises the FSC label and ‘responsible forestry’ comes only second to ‘quality’ as a driver of purchasing decisions
• In 2017, 42 percent (or 90 billion) of Tetra Pak packages featured FSC labels. In 2018, we aim to grow this to just over 53 percent
The FSC licence code for Tetra Pak is FSC® C014047.
