Stora Enso Announces Products With Three Chain-of-custody Certifications
WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI—June 21, 2007—Stora Enso (NYSE: SEO) today announced effective June 1, the Centura®, Productolith® gloss, dull and matte sheets, and the Arbor™ line of products meet the chain-of-custody certification requirements for the following:
• Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), SW-COC-1930;
• Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI), BV-COC-209961-A; and
• Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), BV-COC-209961-B.
In May, Stora Enso announced that six of its North American mills achieved third-party chain-of-custody certifications for SFI® and PEFC, becoming the first coated paper manufacturer in North America to achieve SFI chain-of-custody certification. The SFI and PEFC certifications complement the FSC chain-of-custody certification achieved last year.
“We recognize that many of our customers want assurance that the products they buy come from responsibly managed forests. The entire Centura and Arbor line of products, as well as Productolith sheets in gloss, dull and matte finishes, meet these expectations with threefold confidence,” said Tony McDowell, vice president, branding and market communications. “As a leader in the paper industry, we have a special responsibility to support all credible forest certification schemes. That’s why we have sought and attained these multiple certifications for six of our mills in North America, covering a wide range of products for our customers.” Additional products with chain-of-custody certification may be available on an inquiry basis.
