Recovery Series - Topic 3: Sustainable Forestry Credit Scheme
Me again ... I am sure I'm making no new friends in the paperboard and thermoforming industries with my previous two discussion topics. Why not ask a hard question about forestry certification?
Here is my question.
How is it possible that a paper substrate with a post-consumer recovered content (I've seen as much as 95% PCR) have an SFI or FSC certfication? Is it becuase of the fact that there is "some" virgin content that can be tracked to sustainable forestry practices via chain of custody methodology ... is it because "some" of the OTHER paper that firm sells can be tracked to sustainable forestry practices via chain of custody methodology so they have a rubber stamp they can use at will ... or does it have something to do with a "credit scheme"?
