Mitsubishi HiTec Paper receives PEFC™ certification and renewed FSC® certification

As a responsible manufacturer of speciality papers, Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has now been certified with the PEFC™ Chain-of-Custody for the first time, whilst at the same time the existing FSC® Chain-of-Custody certification has been successfully renewed. 

The conscious use of resources and the sustainable production of premium speciality papers is a special concern for Mitsubishi HiTec Paper. As a result of this, in addition to ISO 9001 (quality management), the two plants in Bielefeld and Flensburg are both ISO 14001 (environmental management) and ISO 50001 (energy management) certified. Now both sites have also been certified with the PEFC™ Chain-of-Custody.

PEFC™ is the largest institution for ensuring sustainable forest management by an independent certification system. Timber and timber products with the PEFC™ seal are known to originate from ecologically, economically and socially sustainable forestry. At the same time, Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has successfully renewed the FSC® Chain-of-Custody certification for both sites.

"We do not only place high demands on the quality of our speciality papers, but also on their sustainable production and the protection of our environment," says Dr. Dieter Becker, Director New Business Development & Corporate Social Responsibility at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper. "Both PEFC™ and FSC® are important components of our CSR and environmental policy".
