Committed to transparency
Companies who are seriously committed to offering an environment-friendly product must fulfill rigorous criteria that are regularly verified by certification bodies. Paper certifications aim at protecting the environment, promoting sustainable practices and informing consumers about the best ecological choices available.
Earning these certifications and holding ourselves accountable to specific key attributes are what make us one of North America’s most environmentally-friendly paper manufacturers.
Forest Stewardship Council Certification supports responsible use of forest resources across all paper manufacturing steps, which means our paper products can be tracked back to an FSC-certified source.
This certifies the 100% post-consumer content of a product.
FSC® Mixed sources
This identifies the products made with a combination of FSC® virgin fiber, and/or recycled materials with controlled virgin fiber.
The Ancient Forest Friendly™
The Ancient Forest Friendly™ designation is one of the most rigorous paper labels available. Ancient Forest Friendly™ paper is free of ancient or endangered forest fiber, made with more than 50% recycled fiber, and whitened without chlorine.
Rain Forest Alliance™
The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ (RAC) seal is a symbol that indicates quality and commitment to effective conservation and sustainability practices.
Our environmental attributes
This indicates the percentage amount of recycled fiber in our paper. Rolland uses post-consumer recycled fiber that has been reclaimed from products after they have been used for their intended purpose by either individuals, households or by commercial, industrial or institutional facilities.
This indicates paper manufactured using a gas produced from decomposing landfill waste. Biogas, a sustainable and local energy, is transported to the mill by pipeline to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This is alkaline or neutral paper that resists aging for more than 100 years under normal warehousing conditions (criteria and certifications established by the American National Standards Institute—ANSI).
Process chlorine free
This refers to paper that has been manufactured and processed chlorine-free. It only applies to recycled fiber.
Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF)
The paper’s virgin fiber has been bleached without chlorine, but with a chlorine derivative.
