Every packaging choice influences our environment. Therefore, It is increasingly important for forest-based products to come from sources that do not damage or destroy forests. Thanks to our FSC certification, we can now offer you packaging solutions to ensure sustainability that begins in the forest.

WHAT IS THE FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL (FSC)?

FSC is a global, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. 

HOW CAN FSC HELP?

FSC has developed a system of forest certification and product labelling that enables people to identify responsibly sourced wood, paper and other forest products.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

FSC's forest certification system has two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody. The certification process is carried out by independent organizations called certification bodies, which assess forest managers and forest product companies against FSC standards. 

WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF AN FSC CERTIFIED FOREST?

Zero deforestation and positive climate impact:
Although trees are harvested, there is no net loss of forest over time.
 
Environmental protection:
Biodiversity is maintained, and high conservation value areas - including old growth forest - are protected.
‍‍
Indigenous peoples' right respected:
Forest inhabitants are consulted and engaged, and cultural rights are maintained. 
‍‍
Fair wage and work environment for workers:
Training, safety and decent wages for all workers are assured. 
 

That being said, when a forest becomes FSC certified, it’s an assurance that all these factors have been considered and that assurance extends to the materials that come from the forest as well (FSC certified paper, cardboard, etc.).
