ELAG and environment

As a packaging manufacturer, ELAG is strongly committed to the environment and supports the social and ecological forest management. After years of recycling all paper waste, ELAG added a step and was FSC certified in 2011.

The FSC label (Forest Stewardship Council) is an indication that material out of wood originates from responsible forestry.

Large areas of forest are important for wildlife, plant diversity, the climate, and also for humans. The increasing demand of goods through the growing population puts our forests under pressure.

FSC is committed to a socially responsible, environmentally sound and economically viable forest management. FSC is an independent association with no financial interests. FSC unites industry associations, environmental organizations and representatives of indigenous ethnic groups where international rules for the responsible use of forest were developed.

Products can only carry the FSC logo for which the timber was produced according to the guidelines of the FSC.

FSC stands for:

  • Respect for the rights of indigenous peoples
  • No conversion of forests to plantations
  • Protection of rare and endangered species
  • Assurance of workers' rights
  • Ban on genetically modified crops
  • Avoidance of pesticides
  • No large-scale forest clearance.
