Unilever Pledges 100% Traceable, Certified Wood Fiber by Year’s End

UnileverUnilever says by the end of this year it will source all paper and board packaging sustainably, moving its pledge forward by five years.

The company originally set a target is to ensure that all materials used that contain fiber obtained from wood are traceable from certified and known sources by 2020. In 2014, the volume of sustainably sourced paper and board used increased to 87 percent, up from 62 percent the previous year.

Unilever says this prompted it to bring forward its commitment to source all paper and board packaging sustainably by the end of 2015.

The new Wood Fibre Sourcing Policy will contribute to Unilever’s work to eliminate deforestation from supply chains, the company says.

Unilever is one of only six major companies and one investor that have comprehensive policies in place to protect tropical forests, according to a February report by Global Canopy Programme.
