By becoming FSC® & PEFC™ CoC certified, ABBE can address our growing customer need for environmentally friendly packaging – by suppling FSC & PEFC certified paper and pulp-based materials. FSC & PEFC certification is in line with ABBE’s commitment to invest in sustainable resources and addressing the ever-growing environmental issues we face today, by being able to produce corrugated cardboard from FSC or PEFC CoC certified materials.
“With our FSC & PEFC CoC certification, ABBE strengthens the commitment to manage our natural resources in the most responsible way possible, sourcing raw materials from certified paper mills, providing our customers peace of mind around the origin of the paper-based packaging they purchase from us.” stated Chris O’Sullivan, Customer Experience Director.
The FSC & PEFC CoC provides assurance that our customers are purchasing packaging products sourced directly from responsibly managed forests. FSC & PEFC, through independent organisations conduct audits to ensure certified members can track, trace, and identify wood fibres from the forest through every step of the manufacturing process, confirming that each supplier along the way follows rigorous controls, management, and reporting practices.

FSC is the most rigorous international standard for responsible forestry. FSC certified forests conserve biological diversity, water resources and crucial ecosystems. The FSC standard also upholds worker rights and supports economic prosperity in surrounding communities. The FSC Chain of Custody certification ensures that certified wood products are tracked from forest to final product (and if applicable, that qualified recycled materials are used), adding legitimacy to the FSC claim throughout the supply chain.
PEFC, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, is a leading global alliance of national forest certification systems. As an international non-profit, non-governmental organization, we are dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management through independent third-party certification.
