The European leading distributor of paper, packaging solutions and visual communication products for professionals.
The Antrak platform, dedicated to Antalis paper, visual communication and Packaging’s suppliers, aims to strengthen traceability and responsibility of the Antalis supply chain. By collecting together exhaustive information on suppliers’ global Corporate Social Responsibility, products regulatory compliance data (including full traceability) and associated manufacturing sites certifications, this tool puts Antalis at the forefront of sustainable supply chain management and brings customers full guarantees on the responsibility behind its products orders.
Antrak: harmonised and exhaustive supply chain data in a single framework
By collecting and centralising comprehensive information on supply chain traceability, Antalis is not only in a position to provide its customers with robust CSR credentials; it also facilitates strong, transparent relationships with suppliers. They in turn benefit from the platform by having the opportunity to gather together information that is often scattered across their organisation. Antalis is the only paper merchant to have implemented such a complete socio-environmental data collection and tracking platform.
The information gathered is then verified for coherence and a due dilligence integrated module identifies any potential risk linked to a supplier, (from the tree species used in the product to the country of origin). An internal committee is then in charge of taking any action to mitigate the identified risk.
Antrak in details:
In addition to general business and contact information, suppliers are asked to complete a questionnaire providing exhaustive information on:
• Product regulatory conformity: compliance with the EU Timber Regulations (tree species used in paper manufacturing and country of origin) , EU REACH directive, FSC® and PEFC standards, food contact regulation, waste directives…as well as environmental product characteristics such as the percentage of recycled fibres used. Certifications attesting to compliance must be provided;• Production site data: ISO certifications, permit expiration date, on-site accident rates, etc…
Antrak is the concrete implementation and continuation of the Sustainable Woodpulp and Paper Sourcing policy which details Antalis’s efforts to ensure it uses timber from legal, sustainable and well-managed sources, and supports initiatives and forestry management schemes that promote this. The platform and policy are an integral part of the Antalis Green Connection Initiative under which the Group aims to collaborate closely with its suppliers, customers and other stakeholders in the paper industry to develop products and solutions that promote environmental excellence.
