FSC was founded to support the world’s forests and provide assurance to print buyers that they are purchasing stock from well managed forests and other controlled sources. Certification with FSC ensures a chain through which the end paper product can be traced back to its source.
PEFC is the world’s largest forest certification system. Our credible standards seek to transform the way forests are managed globally – and locally – to ensure that all of us can enjoy the environmental, social and economic benefits that forests offer.
