The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests. FSC® runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody. The FSC® system allows businesses and consumers to identify, purchase and use carton board products made with materials from well managed forests and/or recycled sources. FSC®'s “tick tree” logo is used to indicate that products are certified under the FSC® system. We are audited every year to ensure we meet the high standards required to enable ourselves and our customers to use the FSC® logo on cartons.
