Sateri unveils sustainable pulp sourcing policy

Jun '15
Sateri, one of the world’s largest viscose staple fibre (VSF) producers, has unveiled its pulp sourcing policy which outlines its commitment towards achieving a global supply chain of sustainable wood pulp.
 
The sustainable policy commits Sateri to avoid purchase of wood pulp that is illegally harvested or traded; from forests of high conservation value, high carbon stock, from ancient and endangered forests or from endangered species habitat; from natural forests; or from genetically modified trees.
 
As per the policy, Sateri will avoid purchase of wood pulp that is obtained in violation of the rights of indigenous people and communities to give or withhold their Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) to operate on lands where they hold legal, communal or customary rights; or obtained in violation of workers’ rights or any of the ILO’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
 
“This pulp sourcing policy guides our purchasing behaviour and will influence our pulp suppliers in a significant way as our goal is to eliminate deforestation from our supply chain. By enforcing the policy, Sateri can ensure that the wood pulp comes from legal and traceable sources, and from forests that are managed in a sustainable way, which includes protection of the rights of indigenous people and workers,” said Sateri’s senior vice president-commercial, Ben Poon.
 
Sateri will actively engage with its pulp suppliers and encourage them to achieve the appropriate forestry certifications, the company said in a statement.
 
It will also implement a supply chain tracing system to track the origins of the wood pulp and enlist independent third parties to verify the same, the statement added.
 
Canopy, a not-for-profit environmental organisation dedicated to protecting forests, species and climate, has welcomed this first stage of Sateri’s commitment to stop sourcing from the world’s endangered forests, deforestation and controversial sources. (RKS)
