3M becomes TFT member

March 5, 2015

3M has become a TFT member, marking a commitment to responsible procurement of pulp and paper products.  3M’s policy applies to its entire pulp and paper supply chain and commits to sourcing paper-based products that are legal, traceable, not associated with deforestation or harm to high conservation values, and respect workers and indigenous people’s rights.

In order to manage this commitment it has launched a new Pulp and Paper Sourcing Policy which will be implemented across its entire operations. The new policy is designed to ensure all the virgin wood fibre going into 3M’s paper and packaging comes from well-managed forests that have no link to deforestation or illegal operations.
