Technotraf Wood Packaging, part of Quadpack Group's Manufacturing Division, has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). With its existing PEFC certification, it is now on the Chain of Custody of two of the world's largest forest management programmes.

FSC is an independent, non-profit organisation that sets standards under which forests and companies are certified. More than 380 million acres of forest are certified under FSC's system. FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. 

"At Technotraf, we work only with wood from European forests that are sustainably managed. Certification helps us demonstrate our commitment and helps encourage countries to manage their forests. After all, wood is the only packaging material that can be an endlessly-renewable resource. Organisations like the FSC are successfully paving the way towards this goal", said Technotraf Commercial Director Jaume Ordeig.

Technotraf is the first wooden beauty packaging manufacturer to achieve FSC certification and to be certified by both the FSC and the PEFC.

FSC Number: SGSCH-COC-060097.

Louvrette one year on: a successful journey

What happens when German engineering excellence meets creativity born in Barcelona? A raft of innovative solutions, developed, produced and delivered in a way that’s sustainable, creative and efficient. That is just one of the outcomes of the rare but successful ‘marriage’ between German manufacturer Louvrette and Quadpack. A lot has happened in the year since the acquisition, which pushed Quadpack into the Top 10 of European beauty packaging providers.

As Sustainability and Innovation are key priorities for Quadpack and the global consumer market, the organisation feels the responsibility to work with supply partners from all regions to establish a new way of doing business, where collaboration is the new competition. On November 13, 2019, Quadpack held a dedicated suppliers’ conference on Sustainability and Innovation in Hong Kong to facilitate this new era of partnerships.
