APC RECEIVES FSC CERTIFICATION FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL
APC has been approved as a FSC certified supplier. FSC or “Forest Stewardship Council” has been established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. The FSC certification ensures that the wood and paper have been harvested in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. APC’s FSC certification is a chain of custody certification ensuring that the paper from forest to mill to converter and ultimately the final package can be traced to ensure it has been sourced to FSC standards. This FSC sourcing is a globally recognized certification, highly recognizable, and a must for paper packaging in the EU. As an approved FSC supplier, APC can issue a logo that can be printed on the packaging showing evidence to the consumer that the paper used in the package has been responsibly sourced.
How does my customer obtain the FSC logo? A number of papers APC uses are already certified. If the paper used by the customer is not currently FSC approved, we can review the requirements with the supplier of the paper to consider adding that to our approved list.
