VAREL, Germany, March 1, 2010 (Press Release) -Papier- und Kartonfabrik Varel has finalised audit for "Forest Stewardship Council" certification (organisation for certification in sustainable forestry) with success. After receipt of document by TÜV-Nord a large part of our products could be labled and sold with FSC-recycling certificate.

Basic idea of this certificate is global protection of forests as eminent habitat for numerous animal and plant species as well as carbondioxide reservoir. An ecofriendly and socially sound production of our products has been confirmed by certifiers. Since foundation of our mill only fibre source is recovered paper, which corresponds to our long lasting entitlement for environmentally friendly production of paper and board. This maxim is a consistent element of our company policy.

Our FSC-certification in addition to DIN EN ISO 14001:2005 certification, already fulfilled in November 2009, proofs impressively our commitment towards environmental protection and social responsibility.
