Sustainability & Certification


Cottonsoft and its affiliate APP (Asia Pulp & Paper) share the same philosophy, that is, we are committed to promoting sustainable development which is economically, socially and environmentally responsible. 

Cottonsoft are proud to support a range of community, sustainability and environmental initiatives both locally and globally. Initiatives range from rainforest rehabilitation to soft plastics recycling and Bowel Cancer NZ sponsorship. 

The Cottonsoft B2B converting facility uses world leading production technology, ensuring a modern, environmentally efficient site. Our plant has minimal waste streams, and waste paper, board and plastic are recycled.


The Livi brand is PEFC certified, plus CottonSofts and Tuffy brands also have ECNZ certification. 

APP has enforced a zero deforestation policy since 2013 plus a zero fire policy protecting forestry assets since 1996.  

In addition to ensuring our products are sourced sustainably, certification also extends to safe, ethical and socially responsible work practices, both locally and via our global supply chains.
