ACE hitting FSC wood sourcing targets, says report

A report from Proforest has claimed that 88% of wood fibre purchased by three of the big beverage carton players was sourced through FSC certified fibre or controlled wood.

The study looked into the chain of custody commitment made by the Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE). The group is made up of Tetra Pak, Elopak and SIG Combibloc.

At 88%, ACE said that its members were “well on track” to meet its commitment to source 100% wood fibre that is traceable to legal and acceptable sources by 2015. Proforest’s latest figures are for 2012 are an improvement on 2011, which put the figure at 85%.

Richard Hands, chief executive of ACE UK said: “It is great to see that, as Proforest have stated in their report, significant progress has been made by our members towards achieving the stretching targets set in 2007.

“Traceability is one of our industry’s most important strategies to combat illegal logging, and is equally important in avoiding socially and environmentally unacceptable sources of wood.

“It is also good news that only 10 more converting plants need to be certified to meet our commitment of 100% CoC certification of all beverage carton manufacturing plants by 2018.”
