Unifoil receives FSC and SFI certifications

US converter Unifoil Corporation has received chain-of-custody certifications from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) program. Unifoil is a specialty converter of paper, board, synthetic paper, plastic, film, foil, and metalized and holographic substrates.

‘FSC and SFI credentials are essential to customers and the consumer, who increasingly demand proof of environmental responsibility,’ said Joseph Funicelli, CEO and president of Unifoil Corporation. ‘These certifications are the perfect complement to our value-added environment-friendly innovations, most notably our recyclable nonlaminated metalized UniLustre papers and boards, which we have been manufacturing for over 15 years. We are very pleased to have our efforts supported by the FSC and SFI.’

Unifoil’s award-winning recyclable UniLustre papers and boards and its new recyclable UltraLustre plastics, both of which are nonlaminated, film-free, foil-free and made without solvents, are said to satisfy consumer-product-goods companies’ sustainability initiatives. UniLustre and UltraLustre materials contribute to source reduction, use less energy and fewer materials compared with alternative products, are less expensive to ship, and can significantly reduce a company’s carbon footprint. Both are available in silver, custom colors, and holographics. Other recyclable products from Unifoil include UniCote and UniBlock materials. Unifoil also converts materials made from recycled content.
