This is the 11th year that Kalideck has been Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) certified. Kalideck urges consumers worldwide to work together to create a better future for our planet and to connect with nature by choosing FSC® certified products.
The true value of forests is recognised and fully incorporated into society worldwide. The mission of the FSC® is to support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests.
FSC® develops, supports and promotes international, national and regional standards in line with its mission; evaluates, accredits and monitors certification bodies which verify the use of FSC® standards; provides training and information; and promotes the use of products that carry the FSC® logo.
What it means for Kalideck to be FSC® certified, and for its FSC® certified papers, is that its products come from FSC® certified forests and other controlled sources, in accordance with strict environmental, social and economic standards that protect our environment.
Marketing and Purchasing Director Romano Daniels said, ‘We are extremely proud to be the largest paper merchant in South Africa and Botswana to receive this certification, illustrating our commitment in managing our supply chain to the strict criteria laid out by the FSC®. It is a tangible reflection of Kalideck’s responsibility to the environment.’
Kalideck has also reinvested millions with landlords across Southern Africa, securing (product availability) space equivalent to more than five rugby playing fields.
