Sofidel, the world’s second largest manufacturer of tissue paper in Europe, has showcased its latest sustainable developments and innovations at Tissue World Miami.

The tissue giant, which last year entered the US market with the acquisition of Cellynne, said sustainability is “a strategic factor for growth and innovation”.

It said: “Some of the factors that have helped us become one of the leading companies in the world are our exclusive commitment to the tissue sector, our plants being close to key markets, our commitment to quality and our client’s satisfaction as well as our sustainability efforts.”

In 2008, Sofidel was the first worldwide tissue company to join WWF’s international Climate Savers programme which encourages companies to reduce their greenhouse gasses voluntarily through the adoption of innovative strategies and technologies and to act as leaders in reducing CO2 emissions. Cellynne has now been renamed Sofidel America and is a fully integrated paper manufacturer serving AfH and consumer lines of business.
