We set the bar high
Jones sets the bar high in our ongoing commitment to quality and the environment. Over the years, we have consistently achieved and exceeded important industry and international standards and best practices to solidify our status as a world-class operation. And, as an industry leader, we not only set these high standards for ourselves to uphold, but also for others to follow.
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests. FSC provides internationally recognized standard-setting, trademark assurance and accreditation services to companies, organizations, and communities interested in responsible forestry.
The Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) is a voluntary third-party forest certification which began in the 1990s in response to market concerns about forest management and illegal logging, primarily in developing countries. Today, SFI is an independent, non-profit organization responsible for maintaining, overseeing and improving a sustainable forestry certification program that is internationally recognized and is the largest single forest standard in the world.
Jones folding carton production capabilities are fully certified by Graphic Measures International (GMI) Ltd. GMI’s certification approach aligns people, process and technology by implementing procedures and determining adherence to five criteria in the manufacturing process: process control and documentation, equipment maintenance, training procedures, operator capability and equipment performance. GMI also performs regular production run sample measurements to ensure we continuously perform to customer standards, while also assessing cartons at the retail level.
While previously registered to the environmental management system, ISO 14001, and the health and safety management system, OHSAS 18001 for several years, we currently exercise the “self-declaration” option outlined by these standards.
