Fasson gains SFI status for eight US plants
The Fasson Roll North America division of Avery Dennison Corporation has achieved certification to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) for eight US coating and distribution locations. By achieving SFI certification, Avery Dennison joins a growing community of companies, landowners, and social and environmental organizations all committed to improving forest practices on a global scale.
“With SFI chain of custody certification, we are strengthening our environmental commitment, and helping our customers demonstrate their own environmental commitment,” says Kevin Rinehart, market segment leader, Fasson Roll North America.
With over 152 million acres certified across North America, the SFI sustainable forestry certification program is one of the largest in the world, with a standard based on principles and measures that promote responsible environmental behavior and sound forest management including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk and forests of exceptional conservation value. Chain-of-custody certification means a company has a tracking system in place that identifies the amount of certified, uncertified and recycled content in the forest products it buys, uses or sells.
The following locations were chosen to support products that carry SFI certification in the expanding portfolio of Fasson EcoFriendly products: Peachtree, GA; Greenfield, IN; Fort Wayne, IN; Greensboro, NC; Rancho Cucamonga, CA; Sacramento, CA; Mentor, OH; and Neenah, WI.
