Duni has gained FSC certification:
Set the table with FSC napkins and table-covers
Duni, Europe’s leading company for table-setting products, has gained certification for FSC (Forest
Stewardship Council) and is therefore allowed to sell products with FSC claims. The certification will
make Duni the biggest supplier of FSC certified napkins and table-covers on the European market.
The FSC label ensures that the wood used to make Duni’s paper based products come from
responsible forest sources.

In a new environmental strategy, called “Our Green Challenge”, Duni has set clear goals for reduction of its
environmental impact. The ambition is to reduce CO2 emissions in operations by 25%, in transportation by
15%, and to reduce energy use by 15% by 2012. Responsible forestry is also an important part of the strategy.

“FSC certified napkins and table-covers in restaurants and homes are a better choice for present and future
generations”, Fredrik von Oelreich, CEO of Duni says. “The FSC certification is an area of major importance
in our efforts to reduce the environmental impact from our business.”

Responsible forest sources
The FSC certified articles accounts for approximately 90% of the total assortment of napkins and table-covers,
and it will be even bigger when there is more FSC certified raw material available. Among the certified articles
are the popular premium products Dunicel, Elegance and Dunilin.

The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) label ensures that the wood used to make Duni’s paper based products
come from responsible forest sources. Certified forests are managed in a way that meets the social, economic
and ecological needs of present and future generations. It minimizes the risks of illegally harvested wood,
wood harvested in violation of traditional or civil rights and wood harvested from forests in which high
conservation values are threatened by management activities. FSC certified forests also minimize the risk of
wood harvested from areas being converted from forests and other wooded eco-systems to plantations or
non-forest uses, as well as wood from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted.

Duni is a leading supplier of attractive and convenient products for table-setting, meal-service and take-away. The Duni brand is sold in more
than 40 markets and enjoys a number one position in Central and Northern Europe. Duni has some 2,000 employees in 17 countries,
headquarters in Malmö and production units in Sweden, Germany and Poland. Duni is listed on OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm..
