For more than two decades Paper Force has been the Australian operated and managed business partner of Asia Pulp and Paper (APP). We connect regional production capacity in printing, communication and packaging paper products with our partners and high volume end users.
Paper Force supports the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact with respect to human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. We are committed to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of our company, and to engage in collaborative projects which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Millennium Development Goals.
Our commitment to the sustainable development of our business places environmental and social responsibility at the heart of what we do. We share in the direction of APP’s 2020 Sustainability Roadmap which recognises these responsibilities and paves the way to achieving our sustainability goals.
It is our environmental responsibility to ensure that the raw materials we use to make our products come from sustainable sources. This is achieved through the implementation of best practices such as PEFC Chain of Custody, High Conservation Value (HCV) and High Carbon Stock (HCS) assessments and protection, and Sustainable Forest Management certification.
We have a social responsibility to the various communities in which we operate. In Melbourne, we provide support to the Rotary Club of Beaumaris Inc. The club has contributed to some incredible projects on Sabu Island in Indonesia, including the building of water wells and supporting student hostels in Kupang and Seba.
