Sustainable sourcing is keyIncrease certified wood fibres for our cartons

Traceability systems for wood independently certified – 100% of board sourced in EU (2006)– 76% of board sourced globally (2006)– Sector commitment to 100%

certification globally by 2015 - recognized by EU & WWF

Forestry management systems independently certified/audited – 46% of the forests our suppliers

source from are certified – 28% FSC and 18% PEFC (2006)
