We are committed to sourcing our products and services in a traceable, as well as socially and environmentally responsible, manner.

Supplied Assurance Framework (SAF)

We have implemented a Supplier Assurance Framework (SAF) to identify and mitigate potential human rights and environmental issues within its supplier base across its Australasia and North American operations.

Our suppliers are being assessed though an initial risk assessment tool, with suppliers identified as high risk being further assessed though the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (Sedex).

Following this further assessment, all suppliers identified as high risk will need to successfully mitigate these risks via an agreed mitigation plan. If the supplier is unable to successfully mitigate these risks, they will no longer be a supplier to Orora.

Responsible Fibre Sourcing

We recognise the significant impact poor forest stewardship can have on the global environment, society and economy, and support and promote the responsible use of forests.

We are committed to procuring all fibre used in the manufacture of our paper and cartonboard products, in Australia, New Zealand and North America, from traceable and socially and environmentally responsible sources.

As part of our Supplier Assurance Framework, all paper and cartonboard suppliers are requested to comply with Orora’s Responsible Fibre Sourcing Policy and Due Diligence Framework to ensure alignment with our values and due diligence requirements of various standards[1] and regulatory tools including the Australian Illegal Logging Prohibition Act 2012 and the US Lacey Act 1900 (amended 2008). 

Forest Chain of Custody

Forest Chain of Custody Certification is the natural next step to ensure that not only our raw materials, but also our finished paper and carton board products maintain transparency and traceability to responsible sources of fibre, providing our customers with peace of mind about where our products come from – from the forest to the end consumer.

We hold both Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) Chain of Custody and Sustainable Forest Initiative® (SFI) Certified sourcing status across a number of our operations

The FSC® Chain of Custody Standard supports responsible forestry practices and ensures transparency and traceability in the fibre supply chain.*

Under the SFI® standards, to bear the SFI® label, there must be an auditable procurement process in place to ensure all fibre comes from responsible and legal sources.

Please ask your Orora Account Manager for more information.

*Only products made from FSC® certified fibre at FSC® Chain of Custody Certified sites can carry the FSC® Claim
