Tetra Pak delivers 200bn FSC packages

JEDDAH, May 9, 2016

Tetra Pak has delivered 200 billion packages labelled with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo by the end of April.

Since 2007, the number of Tetra Pak cartons bearing the FSC logo has increased steadily each year to reach 54 billion in 2015.  And the company expects that trend to accelerate as awareness amongst consumers grows ever higher, said Neils Hougaard, managing director at Tetra Pak Arabia Area.

“With increasing consumer interest in environmental issues and sustainability, companies are starting to communicate their impact on the environment and the actions they are taking in a transparent way. The FSC logo enables consumers to choose brands that are committed to sustainable forestry,” he explained.

Founded in 1994 by a group of non-governmental organisations, timber users and traders, FSC is widely recognised as the highest global certification standard for forest management. For a product to carry the FSC label there must be an unbroken Chain of Custody certification for all relevant sites. Tetra Pak has completed the certification for all converting plants and market companies and can supply FSC-labelled packages from anywhere in the world.
Driving environment excellence is one of Tetra Pak’s strategic priorities. As part of this agenda, the long term ambition is to deliver all packages with the FSC label.

In the Greater Middle East and Africa (GME&A)  Tetra Pak operates in 49 countries, where it has 9 market companies, 21 sales offices and 5 converting plants. In the Arabia area of the GME&A, Tetra Pak is present in 11 countries and has offices located in Dubai, Jordan (Amman), Kuwait City, Lebanon (Beirut), Saudi Arabia (Jeddah and Riyadh), and Yemen (Sana’a). In addition, there is a Tetra Pak converting plant in Jeddah. – TradeArabia News Service
