FSC Certification (Forest Stewardship Council)
Sexton Printing, Inc.
If you are like John, my client in the manufacturing industry, you will want to know more about FSC:
Sustainability is the ability to provide for the needs of the worlds current population without damaging the ability of future generations to provide for themselves. Or, the ability to be carried out over and over without negative environmental effects or impossibly high costs to anyone involved.
Chain of Custody:
FSC COC Requirements:
WHO IS FSC certified:
10 Principles of FSC certification:
Here are the main FSC logos plus a few others for you to review.
°NOTE: Be sure to build some extra time into your production schedule when you want to include these logos on your job. The FSC has 5 variations and are very strict with usage rules.
You MUST use a FSC certified printer (like Sexton) in order to carry the FSC logo or lanquage.
