Forest Stewardship Council®

Pan Pac’s forests achieved Forest Stewardship Council®(FSC‑C017103) Certification in December 2001.

FSC® accredited certification is the mark of responsible forestry, which means that forests are well managed according to strict environmental, social and economic standards. When you buy products with an FSC® label, you are supporting the growth of responsible forest management worldwide. Independent third parties assess our compliance with good forestry practices.

Pan Pac Pulp and Lumber mills hold FSC®  Chain-of-Custody certification (FSC-C006931 and FSC-C106229) providing a guarantee that the sourcing of fibre and the manufacturing of FSC® products through to shipment is in accordance with FSC® criteria.

Our pulp and lumber are FSC® Mix Credit certified, with input fibre and logs sourced from our own sustainably managed FSC® certified forests and other well-managed FSC® certified or controlled wood risk assessed forests in the surrounding region.  All the logs and fibre processed are of New Zealand origin.

FSC® Mix Credit indicates that our products contain wood from FSC® certified forests and other controlled sources that meet the FSC® criteria and standard FSC-STD-40-005.

Controlled Sources means that we have ensured our logs are: ​

  1. Not from GM trees
  2. Not from high value conservation areas
  3. From forests where traditional or civil rights are not violated
  4. Legally obtained
  5. Not from forests that have been converted to plantation.
