Imperial Tobacco’s factory in Nantes, France, has been awarded a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certificate for the use of sustainable materials in its product packaging.
The international certificate serves as a guarantee for consumers of responsible forestry management of the base material for cigarette packaging.
To achieve Chain of Custody Certification, the factory had to demonstrate that its packaging suppliers sourced only FSC-approved materials.
“This enables production of FSC labelled products as part of our increased use of renewable materials and eco-friendly packaging,” said Christophe Grard, quality and process manager at Nantes.
Imperial’s other FSC-certified sites are at Radom in Poland and Wilrijk in Belgium, which is a Rizla plant.
