EU Ecolabel for GraphoMagIQ, GraphoLogIQ, and GraphoMotion
Laakirchen Papier AG has been awarded the EU Ecolabel for its newly developed SC papers GraphoMagIQ, GraphoLogIQ and GraphoMotion. The European Ecolabel - also known as the ‘EU flower’ - highlights environmentally friendly products and services. Now the entire product portfolio of Laakirchen Papier AG has been certified with the label. All products marked with the "EU flower" are produced in compliance with strict ecological criteria.
‘We are pleased about the award of the EU Ecolabel by Federal Minister DI Andrä Rupprechter. It demonstrates once again that the papers of Laakirchen meet all criteria for the certification by an independent award, providing our customers with the highest security in relation to paper grades from environmentally friendly production‘ says Thomas Krawinkler, Head Sales & Marketing at Laakirchen Paper Mill.
To obtain the EU Flower, paper producers must meet strict regulations regarding water and air emissions, and the reduction of energy consumption. In addition, they must meet a number of requirements in terms of environment and sustainability. These include the use of recovered paper fibers or virgin fibers from sustainably managed forests, as well as adherence to strict criteria in the use of chemicals in the production process.
