Certified in Responsibly Sourced Papers
Today, companies and manufacturers are interested in where their products and materials come from as well as their impact on the environment. Manufacturers can become FSC® certified to ensure their packaging and products are being created from responsible sources.
Being FSC® certified means the company is in compliance with strict social and environmental standards of the Forest Stewardship Council®. There are also two types of FSC® Certifications. For owners and managers, the forest management certification is a guarantee your operations meet FSC® standards. The other is for business manufacturing or trading forest products. This verifies that products are handled correctly at every stage of production from the forest to the end user.
These certifications also require the company to be responsible for several actions. The company must follow all legal verifications and applicable laws, reduce the environmental effects of logging and foresting and finally, respect the rights of the forest workers and local communities.
Having an FSC® certification can also create new opportunities for businesses from forest owners and managers to manufacturers. Having an FSC® label on your Paper Shopping Bags or Custom Boxes let your customer know your product was created from responsible sources.
