We recognize our social obligation to demonstrate environmental leadership, for the benefits of our local communities and the community at large. As a company that works with renewable resources, Tembec knows responsible stewardship of those resources ensures a sound future. We invite you to visit Tembec's corporate website for a full overview of our environmental policies and achievements.
Tembec’s business is rooted in the forest, so we have a deep connection to the publicly-owned Canadian forestlands where we have logging operations. For us, well-managed forests truly make sense for our business, our communities and the environment. Please visit Tembec's corporate website for a complete overview of our forest managment practices and achievements.
Forest certification is a voluntary mechanism where a third-party organization audits company performance in the forest and along the fiber sourcing supply chain against detailed standards developed by an independent organization. In 2001, Tembec became the first large public forest products company in Canada to make the commitment to utilize standards developed by the internationally recognized Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and seek certification on all company forest management units.
By 2008, Tembec had certified 100% of the public forestlands under its management, and also achieved Chain of Custody certification. The latter provides a guarantee to consumers that any product with the FSC label can be tracked back to an FSC certified source.
Kallima Coated Cover products meet the most rigorous sustainable forestry standards in the world. You can rest assured that your choice of paperboard is an earth friendly one.
FSC Chain of Custody
Chain of Custody (CoC) advises where the pulp used in a specific product comes from. It permits the tracking from the forest to the consumer, including every stage of transformation. Only operations covered by an FSC "chain-of-custody" CoC certification are permitted to label products with the FSC logo.
Tembec is a partner you can always count on in the Chain of Custody. We are focused on reducing our environmental footprint and creating a sustainable relationship with the forest.
The official list of FSC-certified printers is available on the FSC website.
