All the wood fiber we source and use must come from suppliers that are certified according to the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) or Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™). Our demand is that the fiber at a minimum will always meet the FSC Controlled Wood standard, which means that the origin of the fiber has been verified by an independent third party. FSC is an organization that sets robust and fully transparent standards for responsible forest management that safeguards biodiversity, proper forest conservation and consideration for the people living in and by the forests. Essity participates on a regular basis in stakeholder dialogues concerning forest management, which include other key stakeholders like the environmental organizations WWF and Greenpeace, as well as local stakeholders.
