Irving Consumer Products has announced that its Canadian household consumer tissue products brand Royale has been certified carbon neutral by the Carbon Trust.
Royale tissue products are manufactured by Irving Consumer Products, an affiliate of J.D. Irving.
The company also said that forests managed by J.D. Irving and its affiliates “remove more carbon per year than is emitted in the life cycle of Royale tissue products manufactured in the year.”
It added that each year, J.D. Irving and its affiliates harvest less than 2% of the forest it manages, ensuring that the company grows more wood than it harvests annually.
It said: “The Carbon Trust has certified that Royale tissue products have achieved carbon neutrality on the total carbon footprint of tissue products sold in Canada from cradle-to-grave in accordance with the PAS 2060:2014 standard.
“This includes the carbon footprint of all scopes including input materials, production, distribution, use-phase, and end-of-life phase of the tissue products.”
Robert K. Irving, President of Irving Consumer Products and Co-Chief Executive of J.D. Irving, added: “The confirmation that Royale tissue products are carbon neutral is another step in a larger commitment to caring about the environment by Irving Consumer Products.
“Households across Canada use Royale tissue products in their homes every day, so we’re thrilled to be able to reward that choice with a carbon neutral product that brings unchanged premium quality, value and softness that Royale consumers expect.”
