Working with an environmentally friendly printing company can be a smart business move and the right thing for the plant. The environmental logos on your printed pieces can resonate powerfully with clients. These symbols communicate ethical character to today’s buyers, who often favor companies whose concerns match their ideals.
Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Certification
To be certified as an FSC® certified organization a company must meet a number of rigorous, specific standards. Use of the FSC® labels is one of the most basic indicators that a company is a truly “green” organization. It shows compliance with the highest social and environmental standards.
FSC® certification helps to protect and promote your brand and reputation. Increasingly governments, educational institutions and many others specify FSC certified products.
