What is FSC certification?
The Forrest Stewardship Council (FSC) was established independently in 1990, when concerns about accelerating deforestation, environmental degradation and social exclusion reached a peak. The organisation went on to establish a system that could credibly identify well-managed forests as the sources of responsibly produced wood products.
FSC runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody certification. This system allows us as consumers to identify, purchase and use label materials that are produced from well-managed forests.
What does this mean for our customers?
Sustainability and ethical packaging is a priority for many of our customers. Our environmental policy of offering recycled, recyclable, biodegradable and thinner self-adhesive labels supports their greener packaging initiatives. This in turn can improve sustainability and reduce our impact on the environment.
We are also actively committed to:
- Reducing manufacturing waste
- Implementing greener, more efficient working practices
- Searching for more environmentally friendly products and printing techniques
- Working closely with suppliers who can demonstrate their commitment to the environment
