Sofidel’s Sustainability Story

Sofidel is committed to limiting its impact on the environment and creating a healthier, better future for all. As part of this commitment, Sofidel applies strict policies for the procurement of forestry raw materials. One hundred percent of the pulp used to produce Sofidel paper is certified by independent third parties, such as FSC, FSC Controlled Wood and PEFC. Sofidel is also committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions and is a member of the WWF Climate Savers program. In 2021, Sofidel reduced its direct CO2 emissions by 13.1% in comparison to 2018.

Another recent accomplishment includes the company’s inclusion in the Leadership band of the 2021 CDP Supplier Engagement Rating Report. The CDP is a third-party nonprofit organization dedicated to helping companies, cities and more worldwide manage their environmental impact. The report recognized Sofidel with an A- rating, which is above the industry average for Paper & Packaging and the European and global averages.

Additionally, Sofidel is working to reduce the use of virgin plastic by 50% by ¬¬2030 compared to 2013 levels. To do so, Sofidel support Ocean Conservancy and has developed its HyTech Seas dispensers which are made from recovered ocean plastic.
