Focusing on renewable materials

On average, 75% of a Tetra Pak package is paperboard, made from wood. We are committed to sourcing from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources with the aim of using 100% Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) certified paperboard. This percentage has risen from 38% in 2012 to 41% in 2013.
