A leader in sustainability

SCA Tissue: 80 years of stewardship

• We have been making recycled paper since 1927, the same year Charles

Lindbergh made his first solo trans-Atlantic flight.

• Our products have been third-party certified since 2005, more than four years

earlier than other major brands.

• We have over 100 third-party certified Tork ® bath tissue, towel, napkin, facial

tissue, soap, and wiper products – more than anyone else in our industry.

A holistic approach to

environmental sustainability

Some companies rely on marketing a specific green attribute,

like post-consumer content or source reduction.

At SCA Tissue, we consider all branches of environmental

attributes and actions.

Smart Fit initiatives provide efficient

We fit an additional 3.9 million

Understand what recycling really means

Pre-consumer: by-products generated after the manufacturing

process that are reconstituted into pre-consumer recycled content.

Post-consumer: material that has completed its life cycle

and is reconstituted into post-consumer recycled fiber.

What does it mean if it’s not

100% recycled?

Some companies focus solely on

post-consumer fiber. Be sure to

ask what makes up the balance.

What happens to

pre-consumer and

that isn’t recycled?

It all goes to

the landfill!

the Tork ® Green Hygiene Council TM

SCA understands that true sustainability goes beyond green. It is a convergence of both green and hygiene. As

these issues are approached holistically, it becomes apparent that we cannot focus on environmental health without

also focusing on human health.

We recently introduced the Tork Green Hygiene Council, a group of thirdparty

experts in both hygiene and environment who agree with SCA’s holistic

sustainability mission and purpose. We’ve created the Council to help us

improve our practices and evangelize to businesses and consumers across the


This way of thinking will help us better understand the implications of

sustainability to SCA, our customers’ businesses and bottom lines, and society

as a whole.

TGHC Mission Statement

The Tork Green Hygiene Council (TGHC) was created to assist in Tork’s ongoing commitment to providing

environmentally preferable and hygienic away-from-home washroom solutions.

Comprised of top professional and academic authorities from across the country on green building, corporate

sustainability, hygiene and germ prevention, the TGHC is a council of four experts that offer holistic and trusted

perspectives on how businesses can create sustainable and healthy work and home environments.

TGHC members provide independent feedback and advice on Tork’s environmental and hygiene initiatives, serve as

valued professional resources to Tork’s partners and customers, and provide expertise and industry insight.

The TGHC exists to enhance global awareness of proper sustainability practices to make the world a greener, safer

and cleaner place to live and work.
