Stora Enso Consumer Board is expanding its selection of EU Ecolabel certified boards for graphical end uses. Now also Ensocoat 2S, Aurocard and Performa Alto have been certified, in addition to Ensocoat, Chromocard, Performa White, Performa Bright and Performa Cream.
The EU Ecolabel Certificate confirms that the boards fulfil the European Commission’s ecological criteria for copying and graphic paper. It is thus used in graphical end use areas, not in packaging business. The EU Ecolabel requires the use of certified fibre in board production, limitations of harmful substances and emissions, restrictions on energy use, and implementation of waste management systems.
“A growing number of our graphical board customers want the board with the EU Ecolabel, so we are expanding the board selection to serve our customers’ various demands and preferences. We were the world’s first company to offer board products with the EU Ecolabel and now we are coming up with even stronger portfolio of products for our customers to choose from. This will have a positive impact on the competitive edge of our brands in the tough graphical market,” says Eva Lundqvist, Graphical Boards Segment Development Manager at Stora Enso.
