  • Using FSC certified paper which guarantees the paper comes from sustainable forestry programmes
  • Making your packaging products lighter and smaller, saving material and freight costs and reducing wastage
  • Creating packaging products that can be re-used, saving money and reducing wastage

  • Using recycled products wherever we can on the factory floor and in the office
  • Practising waste minimisation by recycling paper and cardboard

fscWe’re also proud to say that Pakworld was one of the first print packaging companies in NZ to be Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. An independent, global, not-for-profit organisation, the FSC promotes responsible forest management.  Paper that carries the FSC label comes from responsibly managed forests, where the interests of biodiversity, waterways, wildlife and commerce are carefully considered. So we encourage all customers to buy FSC paper as we can guarantee it comes from sustainable forestry programmes.
