FSC Certification: Is It Worth It?
Becoming FSC chain-of-custody certified has certainly benefited some in-plants. But not everyone thinks it's worthwhile.
A story in the latest issue of In-Plant Graphics delves into the issue of chain-of-custody certification. We talk with in-plants that have found it essential...and others that don't see the point.
Fans of certification say it has helped them get and retain business from customers focused on sustainability. Those not planning on becoming certified point to other environmentally conscious changes they have initiated in their in-plants, like recycling, eliminating chemistry and encouraging duplexing. Actions are what matter, they say, not certifications.
To find out what both sides have to say (and learn some surprising news about restrictions on how you market your use of FSC-certified papers) read the story in our March issue.
