Preserving Livelihoods Forests have acted as a home for a number of people and communities over the centuries. They have often existed in harmony with their surroundings for great lengths of time, living off the forest and its resources, whilst relying on sustainable resource use and the renewal of these resources to enable them to continue doing so.

Our paperboard comes from mills that are regularly situated quite close to these forests. The mills often act as a key employer for the local communities where they operate and can act as a contributor to their overall well being.

These communities are often small, and our paperboard producers are both major local employers and significant business partners for many other local enterprises.

Forests are also an important resource for tourism. They provide a natural environment for people to enjoy activities like hiking, camping, fishing and berry-picking.
