  Forest Management

Williams Packaging Limited only use corrugated manufacturers who purchase their paper from suppliers that use wood from well managed forests and who favours suppliers who are certified to a Forest Certification System such as the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and environmental management systems such as ISO 14001.

Forest certification is an assurance given to a purchaser of wood and paper products that the timber used for the product originates from well managed forests. The most common definition of "well-managed" is that the forest is managed in an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable manner.

The assurance given by the certification is based on:
• Public criteria concerning forest management
• Criteria concerning the chain of custody of certified wood used in the product/by the mill
• Monitoring the compliance with these criteria and the eventual labeling of the product or its package

In Europe, the most widespread forest certification systems are Pan European Forest Certification scheme and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
