FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SYLVA, N.C. – The Forest Stewardship Council® recognizes Jackson Paper Manufacturing Co. as proud holder of a special certification since 2009.
The FSC® certification denotes the Jackson Paper product is made from materials that originate from responsible forest management. Jackson Paper manufactures 100-percent recycled paper using old corrugated containers for independent box manufacturers who use it to make the fluted layer of corrugated boxes.
The requirements for the certifications process were completed by a team led by Kiesha Bridges, Technical Supervisor at Jackson Paper.
Tim Campbell, President and CEO of Jackson Paper stated, “It is a rigorous and time consuming process to obtain the FSC® certification. We’re incredibly proud of Kiesha and her team, and their achievements in this process. With FSC® certification, Jackson Paper has strengthened our environmental commitment and is helping our customers to source responsible forest products.”
With the special certification in place, the Jackson Paper product can now carry the FSC® label. The company uses a tracking system that allows them to tell customers the amount of certified, uncertified and recycled content in the forest products they buy, use or sell.
