What they’re doing

J Sainsbury Plc is committed to running an ethically and environmentally responsible business, promoting responsible forest management and eradicating illegal wood products from their supply chains.

How they’re doing it

Sainsbury’s have developed product sourcing policies and ensure that suppliers understand and comply with the following:

  • Where available suppliers must use Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or post-consumer recycled materials

  • Paper sources that also contain pre-consumer recycled content are acceptable providing that the supplier can provide the same level of traceability as for virgin fibres

  • Certification schemes other than FSC, PEFC or TFT will be considered on a limited case by case basis.
