Business has a crucial role in achieving a sustainable future and responsible use of natural resources as enshrined in the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UN. The Vancouver Declaration allows businesses who use these natural products to pledge their commitment to increase responsible sourcing.
- Essity wants to be at the forefront of development in commitments on responsible fiber sourcing. We see FSC as the most credible certification scheme to meet our sustainability targets and strive to increase the volume of certified industrial wood. FSC is a robust and fully transparent standard that safeguards principles on biodiversity and forest conservation, and we continue committing ourselves to making our business even more sustainable, says Mattias Johansson, Public Affairs Director at Essity and one of the company’s delegates at FSC’s General Assembly in Vancouver.
