FPInnovations, in collaboration with The American Forest and Paper Association (AF&PA) and the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC), announced Thursday it has developed a Product Category Rules (PCR) for North American market pulp, paper and paperboard products, tissue, and containerboard manufacturers.
This PCR allows North American pulp, paper, tissue, and containerboard manufacturers to communicate the environmental footprints of their products in compliance with international standards.
