The international endorsement follows Unifoil's receipt of chain-of-custody certifications from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) program. PEFC certification assures purchasers of paper products that they are promoting the sustainable management of forests. Unifoil Corporation is a leading global specialty converter of paper, board, synthetic paper, plastic, film, foil, and metallized and holographic substrates. A trailblazer in the development of environment-friendly packaging and printing materials that create product differentiation, Unifoil created and manufactures the award-winning environment-friendly film-free foil-free Unilustre metallized papers and boards.

"We are very proud to receive PEFC certification," says Joseph Funicelli, CEO and President of Unifoil Corporation. "Unifoil has now earned the three most prestigious chain-of-custody certifications, PEFC, FSC and SFI, and remains committed to supporting the triple bottom line."

Unifoil's award-winning recyclable Unilustre® papers and boards and its new recyclable Ultralustre® plastics, both of which are nonlaminated, film-free, foil-free and made without solvents, satisfy consumer-product-goods companies' sustainability initiatives. Unilustre and Ultralustre materials contribute to source reduction, use less energy and fewer materials compared with alternative products, are less expensive to ship, and can significantly reduce a company's carbon footprint. Both are available in silver, custom colors, and holographics. Other recyclable products from Unifoil include UniCote™ and UniBlock™ materials. Unifoil also converts materials made from recycled content.
