17 of Mondi’s industrial bags plants have successfully been Chain of Custody certified according to FSC and PEFC standards as of February 2013. This multi-site certification was chosen to answer the growing market demand for paper bags certified for sustainable forestry. This certification is in line with the market demand for sustainable packaging. Mondi’s FSC and PEFC certified bags present clear, informative labelling, and have already built a loyal customer base since their launch in 2008. Customers can now ensure that their packaging is certified and issued from sustainable sources and gain increased flexibility if delivered from these plants. “The Chain-of-Custody certification for FSC and PEFC is an excellent additional benefit for our customers,” explains Claudio Fedalto, Sales & Marketing Director, Mondi Industrial Bags. “It is important for us to offer our clients a large range of certifications from process management and hygiene to sustainability aspects – that’s why we continuously invest in these areas,” he says. All in all, 17 plants located in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain are now certified to FSC and PEFC standards.
