Madison, Wisconsin (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
Association industry partner Omnipress announced today they have been granted a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody Certification (BV-COC-029418) by the third party auditing body, Bureau Veritas Certification North America, Inc.
The formal process of Chain-of-Custody Certification requires Omnipress to follow specific procedures and protocol to ensure that FSC-Certified paper purchased and used is tracked and remains within the established "chain" from tree harvesting to the finished product.
"From the paper suppliers to the printing equipment to our recycling practices, we've always been green. Now it's official and we're excited to be able to offer this level of green printing and paper to our clients," says Paul Wehking, Vice President of Sales, Omnipress.
An FSC Chain-of-Custody Certification gives Omnipress and their clients the opportunity to specify FSC-certified paper for their print projects and to display the FSC logo. An FSC logo demonstrates a commitment to environmental responsibility, social benefits and management of the world's forests.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests. It provides standard setting, trademark assurance and accreditation services for companies and organizations interested in responsible forestry. Products carrying the FSC label are independently certified to assure consumers that they come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.
