Chain of Custody
Our certified Chain of Custody is your guarantee of a verifiably sustainable packaging supply chain.
At Smurfit Kappa we produce paper and packaging from virgin and recycled fibres. We are committed to sourcing and managing our natural resources in the most efficient and responsible way possible, through sustainable forest management at our own plantations and forests and transparent processes across the supply chain. We do this not only to meet our own sustainability responsibilities but also those of our customers, providing peace of mind around the origin of the paper-based packaging they use.
We put our commitment into action through voluntary participation in three industry leading forest certification schemes – the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™) and the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI™) – and a comprehensive Chain of Custody certified supply chain system.
Comprising stringent sourcing, monitoring and risk management practices, and holding our suppliers to the same standards, this third-party verified approach means we can guarantee sustainability at every stage of the packaging production process – literally from forest to factory or shop door.
It also enables us to meet our robust commitments:
- 100% of paper produced and sourced for our packaging solutions is FSC®, PEFC™ or SFI™ Chain of Custody certified
- 95% of packaging supplied to customers is FSC®, PEFC™ or SFI™ Chain of Custody certified
