In January 2024, the Leeds-based trusted supplier of corrugated packaging solutions was awarded Chain of Custody Certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

The accreditation gives assurance that products supplied by Greyhound Box are from responsibly-managed forests, thanks to the FSC’s development of the most sustainable forest management models. In turn, this promotes wider sustainability responsibilities along the entire supply chain, from where Greyhound Box source materials to their customers’ operations.

Gaining certification from the ‘global golden standard’ was led by Magdalena Biziewska, General Manager at Greyhound Box.

“We decided to strive for FSC certification to affirm our strong commitment to the environment,” she says. “Greyhound Box is on a continuous journey to limit the negative impact of its operations on the planet, and we believe that being FSC-certified can only assist us with this goal.”

Magdalena goes onto explain the business significance of accreditation from the Forest Stewardship Council. “Now that we’ve achieved the Chain of Custody Certification that’s recognised around the world, we’re better positioned to continue raising awareness around both the sustainable forestry and social aspects of the supply chains our packaging operations rely on.”

The dedication shown by Magdalena to push Greyhound Box to achieve the standard is reflected by Louise O’Brien, Managing Director of the Leeds-based packaging manufacturer.

Louise says, “This achievement shows our continued commitment to the environment, reinforcing the strength of Greyhound Box’s values. I would like to extend my thanks to Magdalena for all her hard work – finding the time to devote to this project alongside her role as GM was no mean feat!”

Magdalena reflects on what the recognition means to her personally, stating, “I feel a great sense of achievement about Greyhound Box being recognised with the FSC certification and I’m incredibly proud of our success.”

Yet gold standard certification is just the start of Greyhound Box’s work with the FSC. The manufacturer is determined to continue finding new and improved ways to provide customers with corrugated cardboard solutions using responsibly-sourced forest materials.
