MWV's Healthcare Packaging Facility Receives Dual Chain of Custody Certification

MeadWestvaco Corp. (NYSE: MWV) announced today that its Mebane, N.C. packaging plant received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody certification in February 2011.

The facility is already certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), and the dual third-party validations of MWV's sustainable fiber sourcing practices help assure customers and consumers of the company's responsible environmental stewardship.

Implementing both SFI and FSC is consistent with MWV's policy of supporting multiple certification systems and implementing programs that ensure an economic supply of available certified paperboard.

MWV's Mebane operation supplies printed packaging materials to many of the leading global pharmaceutical companies, and is part of the company's overall healthcare packaging solutions that promote patient adherence to medications.

“These certifications are valued in the healthcare marketplace, where our business is truly global and where serving public needs is the central focus of our customers,” stated Ted Lithgow, Ph.D., chief science officer of MWV Healthcare. “Stakeholders want assurance that stewardship is practiced and applied to health care solutions, and such certifications help indicate responsible partnership.”
