FSC® Certified

Printforce fully complies with the chain of custody requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC® ). The FSC ensures that there is a transparent chain of custody from the forest, through the paper manufacturing cycle to the final printed product. This guarantees that the raw material used is from a responsibly managed source.


PEFC Certified

PEFCTM, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, is a leading global alliance of national forest certification systems, dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management through independent third-party certification.

Sustainable forest management certification assures that forests are managed in line with challenging environmental, social and economic requirements.

Chain of custody certification tracks forest-based products from sustainable sources to the final product. It demonstrates that each step of the supply chain is closely monitored through independent auditing to ensure that unsustainable sources are excluded.
