Crown Van Gelder believes in delivering quality products with respect for people and the environment. That means placing the highest priority on the health and safety of our colleagues and customers, as well as minimising our environmental impact. To ensure we put these principles into practice, we are regularly independently audited for our compliance with our internal standards, ISO norms, as well as legal and regulatory obligations.
Sustainable forest management: FSC® and PEFC™ Chain of Custody
Protecting biodiversity and ecosystems. Mitigating the effects of climate change. And safeguarding the health and livelihoods of local forest communities. The FSC® and PEFC™ labels verify that forests are managed sustainably and responsibly. All our products are either FSC® COC or PEFC™ COC certified, meaning they are entirely sourced from sustainable forests. Note: our FSC licence number is FSC-C014690.
ISO 22000: Food Safety Management
ISO 22000 exists to protect the health and well-being of consumers, by guaranteeing the safety of food products. The standard specifies requirements for companies involved in the food chain to manage food safety hazards and ensure the final product is safe to consume or use. As a producer of packaging materials for food, Crown Van Gelder is of course certified.
EU Ecolabel for graphic paper
The EU Ecolabel is awarded to products and services that meet high environmental standards. In the case of graphic paper, that means using certified fibres from sustainably managed forests, restricted use of hazardous substances, and low air and water pollution during production.
ISO 9001: Quality
With our focus on delivering high-quality products, we of course have a rigorous quality management system in place. The ISO 9001 standard certifies that this system meets criteria related to several areas including customer focus, quality management and continual improvement.
ISO 50001: Energy Management
Energy is of course inextricably linked to the challenges of climate change. The ISO 50001 standard verifies that Crown Van Gelder has implemented an energy management system to increase energy efficiency and conserve precious resources.
ISO 14001: Environmental Management
From water usage and energy consumption to waste reduction and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. ISO 14001 sets out requirements for systems to manage an organisation’s effect on the environment. With our goal of making the world of paper greener and more sustainable, it should be no surprise that Crown Van Gelder has been certified since 1997.
ISO 45001: Occupational Health and Safety
At the end of the day, nothing is more important than the health and safety of people. ISO 45001 sets out standards to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and generally create better, safer working conditions.
Based in the Netherlands, we of course also comply with several EC norms, EC directives, EC regulations, as well as other related international directives. For more information, please read our general statement.
