Twin Rivers Paper Company has achieved PEFC chain of custody certification, a third-party standard focused on sustainable fiber sourcing. The certification supports the company’s commitment to sustainable fiber sourcing principles.

“The addition of PEFC certification is important both domestically and for its international reach. The standard enables our customers to have confidence the products they use from Twin Rivers are produced using practices that are consistent with their global procurement and sustainability initiatives,” said Dave Deger, vice-president, strategy & marketing.

This rigorous international third-party standard ensures the wood and fiber used to make the company’s lightweight specialty paper and dimensional lumber products originate from sustainable, well-managed forests.

In addition to PEFC, Twin Rivers holds Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) and the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) chain of custody certifications.

Twin Rivers Paper operates a paper mill in Maine and a pulp mill in New Brunswick.
