Mohawk Fine Papers, Inc. unveiled a groundbreaking portfolio of papers, Mohawk Renewal, made from rapidly renewable, sustainable fibers—namely hemp, straw and recycled cotton—in April of last year. Mohawk's world-class engineers have devised a process that allows the mill to create the beautiful, high-performance papers Mohawk is renowned for using rapidly renewable, new fibers. The alternative fibers Mohawk has chosen for its groundbreaking line rely on waste from agriculture and garment manufacturing. By using scraps that would've otherwise been disposed of, we're reducing waste and pollution while creating something beautiful. Now, the entire range of Mohawk Renewal Hemp, Mohawk Renewal Straw and Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton papers have been reviewed and found to be in compliance with United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for use as an Indirect Food Additive (IFA), a designation for materials used in the handling, holding or packaging of food. This means that Renewal products are suitable for use in packaging and labeling applications that involve direct food contact.
Ahlstrom has received the significant honor of successfully achieving the Pet Sustainability Coalition’s “Pet Sustainability Accredited” status. The Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC), an organization committed to advancing sustainability in the pet industry, recognizes Ahlstrom’s commitment to sustainability and its efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its products and operations through the accreditation.
As part of the accreditation process, Ahlstrom underwent a demanding assessment of its sustainability practices, including its environmental impact, social responsibility, and governance policies. The assessment evaluated various aspects of the company’s sustainability performance, such as its carbon footprint, waste management, and water use.
“We are thrilled to achieve accreditation through the Pet Sustainability Coalition, which reflects our commitment to sustainability and responsible business practices,” said Travis Dahlke, Vice President of Ahlstrom’s Food Packaging business. “As a company, we are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact and promoting sustainable practices throughout our operations, specifically with our packaging alternatives.”
