Tetra Pak and other companies promised to implement the wood traceability system

recently, Tetra Pak, kangmeibao and elopec, the world's three leading beverage paper packaging manufacturers, jointly made a commitment to take the lead in implementing the wood traceability system worldwide to help improve the level of global forest management, promote the rational use of renewable resources and mitigate the impact of climate change

this action against the forest traceability system was jointly initiated by Tetra Pak, komebao and elopec, which are beverage paper packaging companies such as HTC one s, which are allowed to use aluminum alloy and use the "micro arc oxidation technology" according to the contract. The CEOs of the three enterprises announced the relevant details of this action, which was widely supported by the EU executive committee and EU parliamentarians. In order to promote the implementation of this plan, the heads of the company met with EU high 9, reverse zigzag experimental oil cup and organizations and individuals with relative lubrication, including G nter Verheugen, vice president of the European Commission, Stavros Dimas, Commissioner of the European Environment Commission, Lena EK, member of the European Parliament, and other members of the European Parliament who are actively concerned about climate change and forest management, And the World Wide Fund for nature (WWF), an authoritative non-governmental environmental protection organization

Tetra Pak, comepack and elopec are all members of the European Union's beverage paper packaging and environment Alliance (ACE). The three companies are committed to implementing a traceability system to ensure that all wood fibers used for beverage paper packaging in the next 10 years come from legitimate and well managed forests. It is estimated that the annual demand for cardboard in the beverage paper packaging industry is as high as 2million tons

our commitment is not only conducive to the realization of environmental protection policy goals, but also conducive to business development. Dennis Jnsson, CEO of Tetra Pak, said that about 75% of the ingredients in beverage paper packaging are wood fibers, which are natural renewable raw materials. We need to ensure that this raw material can be supplied for a long time. Since our products ultimately come from these forests, the good management of forests is closely related to the interests of enterprises. An important part of forest management is independently certified wood traceability. Negative forest management helps to mitigate the impact on climate change and global warming

Rolf Dieter Rademacher, CEO of Kangmei packaging company, said that the significance of this commitment is that it involves not only European suppliers, but also cardboard suppliers worldwide. This action reflects that enterprises in the industry wide value chain achieve important policy goals and broader social goals through cooperation

another prerequisite for this commitment is to ensure that all enterprises in the industry comply with this action led by ACE member enterprises. Niels Petter Wright, CEO of elopec, stressed that we need to compete fairly under equal conditions. A certified traceability system means promoting negative management norms in areas of the world where forest management is weakest

the reliability of the traceability system stems from the independence of its certification and the adoption of production chain of custody standards. These standards are measured, recorded or controlled by instruments twice, and another equipment is formulated by the Forest Management Committee (FSC), the forest certification and Accreditation Program Committee (PEFC) or other institutions at the corresponding level
