SmartWood certifies Curtis Packaging as an FSC environmentally responsible packaging source
Press release from the issuing company
Sandy Hook, CT — Packaging designers, purchasers and specifiers seeking an environmentally responsible source need look no further than Curtis Packaging. The full-service packaging provider is now FSC certified (Forestry Stewardship Council) for its commitment to use paperboard generated by suppliers who practice responsible forestry.
Acknowledged by the SmartWood sustainable Forestry Program of the Rainforest Alliance, the FSC certification program ensures that environmentally sound practices are utilized in up-and-down the supply chain. From foresters and paperboard producers, to printers and converters, to landowners and companies that sell timber or wood- or paper-based products, the program certifies the providers to let consumers know that they comply with FSC standards.
“Since paperboard is the material that powers our business, we need to be sure that we partner with companies that protect ecosystems by implementing business practices that conserve the world's forest resources and utilize them wisely,” says Donald R. Droppo, Chairman & CEO of Curtis Packaging. “FSC certification makes Curtis Packaging an integral part of that important solution.”
