RockTenn's Montreal, Quebec, Canada Folding Plant Earns Triple Chain-of-Custody Certification

Demonstrating its continued commitment to environmental responsibility, RockTenn (NYSE:RKT) announces that it has received triple chain-of-custody (CoC) certification for its Montreal, Quebec, Canada folding carton plant, formerly known as Wilco, Inc.
FILED IN:  Applications  > Healthcare  > Pharmaceutical
This plant is now certified by Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), representing the leading global forestry certification bodies.

These organizations provide third-party validation of the plant’s documented processes and chain of custody monitoring.

Last year, all of RockTenn’s folding carton plants achieved Fiber Sourcing Certification to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, and in June, RockTenn’s Marion, NC, folding plant achieved Triple CoC certification. “Our Montreal folding carton plant’s Triple CoC certification is another significant milestone in the execution of our environmental sustainability strategy,” said Mike Kiepura, Executive Vice President, RockTenn. “This additional certification gives customers assurance that the fiber in their cartons is thoroughly tracked from well-managed forests, controlled sources or recycled material.”

RockTenn is committed to environmental stewardship, sustainable business practices and developing sustainable solutions for its customers. This long standing environmental focus guides how the company collects, processes and recycles materials; produces paperboard with virgin fiber and recycled materials; and operates its facilities. A sustainable approach helps RockTenn minimize its impact on the environment.
