Tork supports FSC Friday 2015

Forest
Stewardship Council¨ (FSC¨ ) Australia and New Zealand will
launch a Trans-Tasman campaign in September to encourage businesses to buy
products that carry the FSC label as part of the not-for-profit’s global
certification scheme that rewards forest friendly growers, manufacturers and
retailers.

The month-long
campaign leading up to FSC Friday on September 25, aims to highlight the impact
procurement professionals and consumers can have when they choose products
sourced from responsibly managed forests. The social media campaign supported
by brands like Tork¨ and retailers including Officeworks, will
remind consumers to look out for the FSC label on everyday items like toilet
paper, facial tissues, hand towel, napkins and wipers so they can ensure their
purchase is supporting responsible forest managers.

Sid Takla, Executive
General Manager at Tork Professional Hygiene said, “We are
pleased to once again be a regional Gold Sponsor for FSC Friday and are focused
on raising awareness of responsible forestry practices and principles in the
region. We are proud that over 60 products in the Tork range are FSC certified and one hundred percent
of their virgin fibre-based material comes from non-controversial,
environmentally responsible sources.”

FSC Australia CEO
Adam Beaumont said, “When a business or consumer buys an FSC certified
product, like those in the Tork range, they can be confident every stage of its
supply chain has been independently assessed to ensure it’s sourced from a
responsibly harvested natural or plantation forest, which meets the FSC’s
rigorous economic, environmental and social standards.”

Beaumont said
growing business and consumer demand for FSC certified products in both local
and international markets over the last few years had driven measurable change
back through the supply chain, resulting in an unprecedented number of forest
managers seeking to improve their practices in line with FSC standards.

In 2015 FSC is
celebrating with a Facebook competition for supporters in both Australia and
New Zealand, to win an amazing holiday for four, all expenses paid, to
Paperbark Camp eco-resort in Jervis Bay (NSW). To enter visit facebook.com/FSCaustralia
