All of Weyerhaeusers containerboard packaging plants have earned Sustainable Forestry Initiative certification and are authorized to use the SFI Certified Sourcing product label.
Our customers want environmentally sustainable packaging, James R. Keller, senior vice president, containerboard packaging and recycling, said. They appreciate that our corrugated packaging is recyclable and averages 50% post-consumer recycled fibre content and 57% total recycled fibre content. Now, this third-party SFI certification offers further assurance that our forest resource is managed using sustainable forestry standards and that our operations and products are consistent with SFI sustainable forest management principles.
To earn the use of the SFI-certified procurement label, two-thirds of a companys packaging raw material must originate from mills with certified wood fibre procurement systems or recycled paper sources.
