Strathcona Paper LP, has been granted Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody certification. The certification validates that Strathcona Paper produces only 100% recycled paperboard from verified recycled sources. Strathcona Paper is dedicated exclusively to the manufacture and supply of medium- to heavy-weight paperboard.

“Since Strathcona began well over a century ago, our commitment to conducting business in an environmentally sensitive and responsible manner has been a driving force in our business model,” says Mark Sklar, president and COO. “Our FSC certification further attests to this ongoing commitment and firmly addresses our customers’ growing sustainability initiatives.”

Leading the market with an industry first, the company’s GreenChoice 100 product is the only coated paperboard that is 100% recycled, 100% carbon neutral, and manufactured using 100% clean energy.

As well, Strathcona Paper is the only 100% recycled claycoated paperboard mill in North America with ISO 14001 certification.

Under FSC certification, recycled fibre from verified sources is tracked all the way to the consumer through the Chain of Custody (CoC) certification system. The FSC “check-tree” logo is the customer’s guarantee that the products they buy are responsibly sourced.

Strathcona Paper LP is based in Toronto, with a 200,000-sq.-ft. paper mill and 45,000-sq.-ft. warehouse located in Napanee, Ont.
