Our gentle carbon footprint

The organization we belong to manages forests that remove more carbon than is emitted in the lifecycle of our tissue products each year**. This includes the carbon footprint of all scopes including input materials, production, distribution, use-phase, and end-of-life phase of the tissue products.

The Carbon Trust has verified that Scotties® tissue products have achieved carbon neutrality on the total carbon footprint of tissue products sold in the U.S. from cradle-to-grave in accordance with the PAS 2060:2014 standard.

That’s something we’re really proud of. Check out our Qualifying Explanatory Statement.
