The two certifications which apply to our paper are –
- Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organisation established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. The FSC does this by setting standards forn forest products, along with certifying and labelling them as eco-friendly.
- The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Scheme The PEFC is a not-for-profit, membership-based, non-governmental organisation with a mission to promote sustainable forest management globally. Under PEFC certification, the chain of custody of forests is tracked back through the supply chain to verify the management of forests.
