For many years now, we have been labelling the types of wood and wood products available from us as transparently as possible. We go beyond the statutory provisions on declaring wood and wood products that have applied since 2010. This information is shown either on the product itself, the packaging or label, in the online store or, in exceptional cases, on the shelf. We do not include in our range any products that are not certified and that contain tropical or rainforest wood or fibres. Some examples are wood from primary forests or from high conservation value forest areas. Only products made of FSC-certified tropical or rainforest wood are permitted.
As a matter of principle, we disclose the type of wood and country of origin for all our wood products, regardless of whether they are own-label products or branded items. Under Coop Oecoplan, we have for many years been selling paper and toilet paper made from 100 percent recycled fibre, which eliminates the need for new wood in the manufacturing process.
