What is the FSC chain of custody scheme?
The FSC Chain of Custody standard governs the tracking of Forest Stewardship Council certified products from the forest to the marketplace. Anyone who wishes to use the FSC trade mark on their goods must be certified by the scheme. This includes builders, contractors, publishers, printers, timber traders, product repackaging firms and anyone using forest sourced wood and other materials for manufacture.
What are the benefits?
Any products branded with the certified FSC logos demonstrates your company’s desire to be an environmentally friendly and socially aware organisation; in addition to adding tangible value to your products and services in terms of their environmental quality. This in turn increases your attractiveness to potential customers, particularly for more environmentally aware sections of your existing marketplace. Not only that, it also shows that you have professional management structures in place, demonstrating your professionalism in the industry. The positive management streamlining effects of gaining accreditation will also benefit your employees, shareholders and other stakeholders.
