FSC Certified for environmentally responsible print management

For over 25 years, CGL has been a pioneer in print management. As part of that, we have always taken our environmental responsibilities very seriously and are continuously looking for new ways to introduce environmentally friendly processes and materials into our print offer. Being FSC Certified is a cornerstone of this strategy.

What is the FSC?

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) was founded in 1993 as a non-profit organisation to ensure the world’s forests are managed responsibly and sustainably, wildlife is protected and the rights of local communities are respected.

How does it work?

The FSC operates a Chain of Custody process to verify the source of timber. This involves inspecting and auditing the land from which timber and pulpwood are taken and tracking products right through the various production processes to the end user. So this includes monitoring the paper manufacturer, distributor and printing by an FCS Certified print company. This process has to be independently verified before any product is able to carry the FSC logo.

How do I qualify to add the FSC Certified logo on my products?

Computastat is an FSC Certified printer and the majority of our print products are FSC Certified. We are therefore authorised to add the worldwide respected FSC logo on your printed products.

What does the FSC Certified logo stand for?

With increasingly ‘environmentally educated’ businesses and public alike, more and more people demand environmental responsibility from the organisations they deal with and buy products from. The FSC logo on your printed products will reassure them of your credentials.

FSC Certification Key Benefits

  • FSC Certified products are made with consideration for people, wildlife and the environment.
  • Displaying the FSC logo on your products reinforces your company’s own sustainability/CSR programme.
  • FSC Certification guarantees that any trees harvested are replaced and allowed to regenerate naturally.
  • FSC Certification protects the rights of indigenous people to use the forest, for example by banning felling in areas with sacred sites.
  • Forest owners must use local workers to run the forest, as well as providing training, safety equipment and decent wages.
  • Forest owners are often obliged to support the community in other ways, such as the development of local schools.
  • FSC Certification is a market-based initiative that ensures better conditions for the forest and the people whose livelihoods depend on it.
  • FSC Certification means all timber and pulpwood is tracked from the forest to the final printed publication, with every link certified to make it clearly identifiable as to which paper is FSC certified.
  • The FSC Certification scheme is endorsed by the major environmental charities, including WWF, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace and the Woodland Trust.
