ISO 9001, 14001 and 50001 certified
All of our mills are ISO 9001 (quality standard) and 14001-certified (environmental standard).
Our Stoneywood Mill is ISO 50001-certified (energy standard) and ESOS compliant.
Fully FSC™-certified (Forestry Stewardship Council)
All of our products are made of materials from well-managed, FSC-certified forests and other controlled sources. This guarantees that pulp is sourced from well-managed forests and a socially responsible chain of production, from seedling to paper. Chain of custody certification from forest to end-user ensures that FSC materials and products have been checked at every stage of processing.
PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification)
PEFC seeks to transform the way forests are managed globally – and locally – to ensure that all of us can enjoy the environmental, social, and economic benefits that forests offer.
Our Stoneywood Mill and Chartham Mill are PEFC-certified and can provide PEFC certificates for bespoke products (subject to MOQ).
Our recycled papers are certified post-consumer waste under our FSC certification. We produce high-quality recycled grades using premium post-consumer waste pulp to preserve the properties of our creative and specialist papers. A careful selection of waste and specific de-inking processes ensure the cleanliness of the pulp and its excellent printability.
REACH and RoHS-compliant
All Arjowiggins’ mills comply with the REACH European regulation which covers registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction processes for chemical substances and risk of hazardous substances.
Stoneywood Mill, which manufactures our PowerCoat smart paper range, is RoHS Kitemark-compliant.
The EU directive for the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment, known as RoHS, is designed to protect human health and the environment, and is linked to the directive on the disposal of electrical and electronic waste. It controls the use of certain hazardous substances – including metals and manufactured chemicals (Restrictions of Hazardous Substances)
ECF (Elemental Chlorine Free)
All our papers are ECF. Our production processes do not use elemental chlorine gas during the bleaching process, preventing the formation of dioxins, dioxin-like compounds and carcinogens.
Conqueror, our leading fine paper, is certified carbon neutral in 15 countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Luxemburg, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and Eire. We aim at reducing our carbon emissions and offsetting emissions which cannot be reduced by investing in tree-planting programmes and clean energy projects.
