USA: RPA-100% launches recycled fiber certification program
The 100% Recycled Paperboard Alliance (RPA-100%) has launched a certification program solely focused on providing substantiation of the recycled fiber claim associated with the manufacture of 100% recycled paperboard. RPA-100% member recycled paperboard mills were audited by 3rd party organizations in December 2013 and began marketing certified 100% recycled paperboard (CRB) on January 1st 2014.
The new certification program and accompanying revised trademarked symbol provide consumers a new level of assurance that the paperboard used in the packaging of the product they are purchasing has been verified as 100% recovered fiber (Press Release RPA-100%, 6 January 2014).
