The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international network to promote responsible management of the world’s forests.
FSC Chain of Custody Certification
Chain of custody certification provides a guarantee about the production of FSC-certified products. Chain-of-custody is the path taken by raw materials from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing and distribution.
What is difference between FSC Label and non FSC Label
From a customer perspective, the FSC label represents a promise that is being made to them. Chain of custody standards are the mechanism FSC has to ensure that ‘promise‘ is delivered. Many printing consultants, printing firms and paper traders have been FSC certified.
