Responsibly Sourced Paper | Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)

BIG SKY PACKAGING is dedicated to providing responsible sourcing of paper products for your brand.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has become, for all intensive purposes, the “standard” in the verification of responsibly sourced wood and paper products. From forest to the consumer, the FSC tracks and monitors every step of the way to ensure good practices are upheld. The FSC sets standards for forestry operations whose managers want to comply with good management practices, and for producers and traders of forest products who want to source from these suppliers and communicate this to their customers.

  • Forest Management (FM) standards, which set rules for forest operators to comply with responsible forest management requirements
  • Chain of Custody (CoC) standards, which set requirements for the FSC verification, from the forest to the end buyer/consumer.

Companies can hold Forest Management (FM) certification, or Chain of Custody (CoC) certification, or both. FSC does not issue certificates itself but uses an independent third party to obtain impartial certification decisions.

FSC labels are used on products to identify that the product has been verified to come from an FSC-certified source. FSC labels can be found on millions of products around the world: from toilet rolls to your favorite book, that milk carton in your fridge, and other food products. All of our labels provide you with an assurance that the product you are buying is made from responsible sources and has been verified to meet FSC’s strict environmental and social standards.
