Sustainability is critical to our business and our customers can have complete confidence in the products they buy from us, the origin of the materials used and the method of manufacture.

As a socially, economically and environmentally responsible company, we adhere to stringent New Zealand and international environmental laws, only sourcing the fibre for our products from internationally certified suppliers. We are committed to purchasing wood fibre for pulp making operations from sustainably managed forestry sources which conserve areas of outstanding habitat and operate in harmony with local communities.

To support this commitment, all of our paper comes from sources that are independently verified by credible third party auditors including TUV Rheinland, SGS and various government organisations.

Most Cottonsoft paper products use paper certified through the world’s largest forest certication system, Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC);

A PEFC certification means you can be sure that our paper is sustainably sourced, with fibre from responsibly managed forests and ecosystems. PEFC certification also extends beyond the environment and ensures that the products are made to the highest social standards including employee rights, education and cultural values both locally and via our global supply channels.

As the only entirely not-for-profit global forest certification system available, PEFC is unique.
