Fedrigoni sustainability path has a rigorous approach, relying on internal and external tools that measure and verify our actions and progress.


We obtained our first certification in 1993 and since then we have operated in accordance with existing standards at an international level, several of which are voluntary. Here below the most relevant.


The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an internationally recognised forest certification system, focused on correct forest management and traceability of derived products. 100% of our pulp is FSC certified. Fabriano has been a supporter of FSC Italy since 2021: A sign of the ever-increasing collaboration between them.

ISO 9001

This is the most widely used international benchmark standard for the Quality Management of any organisation. 100% of our Italian Special Papers sites and 100% of our self-adhesive sites have obtained this certification (with quality management procedures aligned with the principles of ISO 9001, without external certification).

ISO 14001

This is an international and entirely voluntary standard that specifies the requirements for an environmental management system. Based on an analysis, it is used to identify company environmental risks and reduce them. 67% of our Italian Special Papers sites and 77% of our self-adhesive production sites are ISO 140001 certified.

ISO 45001

This is the certification that specifies the requirements for an occupational health and safety (OSH) management system and provides guidance for its use. 100% of our Italian Special Papers sites and 62% of our self-adhesive production sites are ISO 45001 certified.

ISO 50001

Energy Management Systems.
20% of the Italian Special Papers sites are ISO 50001 certified. 100% of the Self-Adhesives sites have energy management procedures that are aligned with ISO 50001 principles, without external certification.


Sustainability is a collective, synergistic path consisting of common goals. This is why we work together with the most authoritative international organisations that promote unambiguous standards and criteria for sustainable development.

We have officially joined the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative created to support companies worldwide to adopt sustainable policies and to make public the results of the actions taken.
