The FSC ensures that there is a transparent chain of custody from the forest, through the paper manufacturing cycle to the final printed product. This guarantees that the raw material used is from a responsibly managed source.
We have signed up to the government’s CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme and the Climate Change Agreement (CCA) and continue to meet all targets in relation to both of these schemes which aim to reduce our CO2 emissions.
Valpak Waste Scheme
Our commitment to the VPWS (Valpak Packaging Waste Scheme) results in a year-on-year reduction of all packaging waste. Furthermore, 90% of all our waste is recycled, reducing what is sent to landfill.
This is an internationally recognised environmental quality standard requiring us to manage our supply chain, operations and waste streams in a responsible manner, minimising our impact on the environment and constantly improving our processes.
CPI have an important role to play in promoting the sustainability of forests around the world. Through responsible sourcing, we create the demand for certified sustainable material, providing a financial incentive to keep a forest a forest, and not use it for other purposes.
