Antalis and paper source

Letter received by a supporter from a very large paper manufacturing company.


At Antalis, we audit our suppliers to mitigate risk and scrutinise wood fibre origins.

We do not buy from suppliers whose Mill’s, source wood from natural forests or countries where the ‘environmental pressure groups’ have continual concern.

The result of this is that all our wood based products are manufactured by Mills that are either FSC or PEFC certified and in many Mills’ they have dual certification.

In addition, over 90% of our paper and board products are individually certified by an eco-label standard such as: Eu-flower, PEFC, Nordic Swan, Blue Angel, and FSC. Both PEFC and FSC employ the material traceability system of Chain of Custody Certification, for which Antalis in the UK has had dual certification of FSC & PEFC, since December 2003.

The Mills we use are located in the UK , France , Germany , Holland , Sweden , Finland , Austria , Italy , Portugal , Spain , South Africa , and Brazil .

Antalis does not buy from Indonesia or Malaysia .

Please give me your company names and address and I will send you some supporting information.
