Self-Check tool

The non-public Environmental Self-Check is a free management tool to assist companies along the whole pulp and paper supply chain in their efforts towards greater sustainability and credibility.

 The Self-Check tool can support a company’s internal decision making between sales, marketing, production/technical and procurement divisions.

It can help to communicate the environmental performance of products to merchants and direct customers without the need for results to be made public, unless both parties want this.

Mills and their customers can use the tool to reduce reputational risks - for both mill brands and customer brands - and to work together towards improvements with the help of concrete indicators.
