At the present moment the pulp and paper market sees a growing demand for products manufactured of legally harvested wood with regards to responsible forest management principles. International certification according to Forest Stewardship Council® system guarantees compliance with these principles.
Arkhangelsk PPM, JSC does not lease forestland nor has its own logging divisions. APPM’s general timber supplier is ICE Titan, LLC which received FSC certificate in 2005 and was re-certified in 2010 and 2015.
In 2006 Arkhangelsk PPM, JSC (FSC license code FSC-C002853) received an FSC Chain of Custody certificate and became the first Russian pulp and paper enterprise to release FSC-labeled end product (bleached hardwood pulp).
Since the certification completion the mill specialists have been working on expanding the scope of certification to increase FSC-certified finished-product output. After another inspection audit in 2009 the scope of certification was expanded to cover FSC-certified bleached softwood kraft pulp. Arkhangelsk PPM, JSC was successfully re-certified in 2011 and in addition to Chain of Custody certificate it received Controlled Wood Certificate. In the course of an inspection audit at the beginning of 2013 production of FSC-labeled board and paper end product was added to the scope of certification.
At the present time Arkhangelsk PPM, JSC can offer its customers the following list of FSC-labeled and controlled products.
Further aims of the mill include an increase of the processed FSC-certified wood volume and, correspondingly, increase of FSC-labeled end product output volume. Further spreading of the voluntary forest certification in Russia should contribute to it.
APPM’s plans in these terms go well with the Integrated Management System adopted at the mill.
Arkhangelsk PPM, JSC is an active member of the Association of Environmentally Responsible Timber Producers of Russia created under the auspices of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
