Sustainability

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international non-profit organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world's forests. Its main tools for achieving this are standard setting, independent certification and labeling of forest products. This offers customers around the world the ability to choose products from socially and environmentally responsible forestry.

FSC® was established as a response to concerns over the state of the forest, globally. Half of the world's forests have already been altered, degraded, destroyed or converted into other land uses. Despite aid-funded programs and forest legislation, these efforts have proved insufficient to reduce forest loss or forest degradation. Much of the remaining forests today suffer from illegal exploitation and otherwise poor management. The need to substantially improve forest management practices persists.

FSC® is the first world-wide certification system established for forests and forest products. This voluntary market driven mechanism can be regarded as one of the most important initiatives of the last decade to promote better forest management.

Printing with Recycled Paper

Recycled paper has progressed from gray and dingy flecked sheets, which many commercial printers would not use because of poor control of acidity and other problems, to an indistinguishable competitor. Recycled paper used to be too pricey but now there are recycled papers at the same price point as non-recycled papers.
