Filecorp is committed to producing its range of filing products, consumables and services in the most environmentally responsible manner possible.
All file products are 100% recyclable.
The raw materials used to produce Filecorp files are wood fibre and pulp, and are sourced from sustainably managed plantation forests, in excess of 90% content being locally sourced from pinus radiata plantations.
No wood fibre used is sourced from New Zealand indigenous (native) species.
The pulp production is ECF (elemental chlorine free) and the groundwood mechanical method, which is recognized in having the lowest of all environmental impacts.
Few products contain recycled fibre. This is due to the fact the our file board material is also used in the food packaging industry, and due to FDA regulations, deleterious substances contained in the waste stream and the possibility of subsequent human health hazards precludes recycled fibre from being used. Therefore all Filecorp board grades contain only virgin fibre. It is also important, with the level of recycling occurring in the paper industry, that there are sources of virgin fibre injected into the waste stream to maintain the strength of the recycled fibre.
The inks used in the printing of our files are based on vegetable oils which have replaced mineral oils, and the remaining components of the ink are produced from 100% renewable resources. These inks comply with ISO9001:2000, ISO14001:2004 and OHSAS18001:1999 standards.
