Design For Recovery
In 2017, we announced our commitment to a closed-loop supply chain—where products are made using recycled or renewable materials only. And where we return an equivalent amount of material back to the market to be used by us or others.
We hold ourselves to a strict definition of closed loop: To meet our goal, we must use 100 percent responsibly sourced recycled or renewable materials and ensure the equivalent amount is returned to market.
Responsible Fiber Sourcing
For renewable materials such as the wood fiber in our packaging, our focus is on regeneration of supply, meaning that we create, or protect, an equivalent supply of the resource that we use.
Wherever possible, we use recycled paper. But when virgin paper is needed in our packaging, we require our suppliers to source it from sustainably managed forests or FSC controlled wood sources.
We work to minimize the water we use, especially in areas of elevated water risk.
Once we have minimized our water use, we look to alternative sources to help reduce freshwater withdrawals, including recycled water, reclaimed water, and rainwater harvesting.
We‘re looking to restore water resources in the most critical regions in which we operate.
