SCA Tissue earns green certification

May 12, 2008
PHILADELPHIA — SCA Tissue has added five SKUs to its list of EcoLogo-certified towels, facial tissues, bath tissues and napkins, bringing the total number to 75.
Receiving EcoLogo certification were the company's Tork Advanced Dinner Napkins, Tork Advanced Perforated Roll Towel, and Tork Advanced and Tork Universal Facial Tissue Flat Boxes.
Being EcoLogo certified requires an ongoing third-party review of a company's eco-footprint, from energy and water use to waste and effluent discharge. EcoLogo is North America's oldest and one of the most widely recognized certification of environmental leadership. It also is the only North American standard accredited by the Global Ecolabeling Network (GEN) as meeting the international ISO 14024 standard for environmental labels.
SCA Tissue North America, one of the largest producers of away-from-home tissue products in North America, was the first American papermaker to earn EcoLogo certification, according to a news release.
