What does it mean to be FSC®Certified?
The mission of the Forest Stewardship Council is to support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests.
FSC develops, supports and promotes international, national and regional standards in line with its mission; evaluates, accredits and monitors certification bodies which verify the use of FSC standards; provides training and information; and promotes the use of products that carry the FSC logo.
FSC CHAIN OF CUSTODY
- FSC Chain of Custody is an information trail taken by products from the forest or, in the case of recycled materials, from the reclamation site, to the consumer. This trail includes each stage of processing, transformation, manufacturing and distribution, where progress to the next stage of the supply chain involves a change of ownership.
- Any change of ownership in the supply chain requires the establishment of effective Chain of Custody management systems, at the level of the respective organisation and their verification by independent certification bodies, if the organisation wants to make an FSC claim about their products.
- Developing and implementing Chain of Custody management systems is a way for organisations to effectively control their processing system, and show their customers the origin of the material in their products.
Our aim is to show our commitment to this responsible forestry program and ensure Responsible Paper Distribution beyond just paper sourcing. We, as M.H.Goldschmidt ensure that our current and future suppliers source material from well-managed, controlled resources.
