Duni has gained FSC certification: Set the table with FSC napkins and table-covers

Duni, Europe’s leading company for table-setting products, has gained certification for FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and is therefore allowed to sell products with FSC claims. The certification will make Duni the biggest supplier of FSC certified napkins and table-covers on the European market. The FSC label ensures that the wood used to make Duni’s paper based products come from responsible forest sources.

In a new environmental strategy, called “Our Green Challenge”, Duni has set clear goals for reduction of its environmental impact. The ambition is to reduce CO2 emissions in operations by 25%, in transportation by 15%, and to reduce energy use by 15% by 2012. Responsible forestry is also an important part of the strategy.

“FSC certified napkins and table-covers in restaurants and homes are a better choice for present and future generations”, Fredrik von Oelreich, CEO of Duni says. “The FSC certification is an area of major importance in our efforts to reduce the environmental impact from our business.”

Responsible forest sources
The FSC certified articles accounts for approximately 90% of the total assortment of napkins and table-covers, and it will be even bigger when there is more FSC certified raw material available. Among the certified articles are the popular premium products Dunicel, Elegance and Dunilin.

The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) label ensures that the wood used to make Duni’s paper based products come from responsible forest sources. Certified forests are managed in a way that meets the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. It minimizes the risks of illegally harvested wood, wood harvested in violation of traditional or civil rights and wood harvested from forests in which high conservation values are threatened by management activities. FSC certified forests also minimize the risk of wood harvested from areas being converted from forests and other wooded eco-systems to plantations or non-forest uses, as well as wood from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted.
