What is the FSC Chain Of Custody?
The FSC Chain of Custody is an audit process which verifies the source of a timber product through the supply chain. Certification involves inspection and auditing of the land from which the timber and pulpwood originate and tracking it through all steps of the production process to the end user: from paper manufacturer, to distributor, to the printing by an FSC-Certified printing company. Only when this process has been independently verified is the product eligible to carry the FSC logo.
Why should I choose to print within the FSC certification system?
The FSC certification system allows you to know that you are doing the right thing, by not doing business with companies that may still be supporting illegal, unverified logging activities. The intent of the FSC system is to shift the market to eliminate habitat destruction, water pollution, displacement of indigenous peoples, and violence against people and wildlife that often accompanies logging.
Why should I choose to print on FSC-certified materials?
