Ian Lifshitz, Asia Pulp & Paper’s Director of Sustainability for the Americas, has been named Co-Chair of the Paper, Pulp and Forestry (PPF) Sector Working Group for The Sustainability Consortium.
The PPF Sector Working Group is composed of industry experts, non-profit organizations and academic/research institutions. Lifshitz will co-lead the working group as it examines sustainability issues – environmental, social, and economic – for several forestry products, including lumber, engineered wood products, books, facial tissue and greeting cards.
“It’s a great honor to be appointed Co-Chair of this valuable working group for The Sustainability Consortium,” said Lifshitz. “APP was one of the first major pulp and paper companies to implement a comprehensive Zero Deforestation supply chain policy and so we are uniquely positioned to provide insights in this area.”
With products distributed in more than 120 countries, APP has an annual combined pulp, paper, packaging product and converting capacity of over 19 million tons.
The Sustainability Consortium, jointly administered by Arizona State University and the University of Arkansas, is comprised of more than 100 members, including manufacturers, retailers, NGOs, civil society and corporations that work collaboratively on supply networks. It also has operations at Wageningen UR in the Netherlands and Nanjing University in China.
