Paper is part of everyday life. With its physical properties and conveniences, paper satisfies a communication need not always fulfilled by digital media. Paper is produced from wood, a renewable and recyclable raw material; hence it is very important to make a commitment to its responsible production and consumption.
Mr. Grekis also stated: “Our hope is that we contribute to raising the level of consumer awareness about FSC and demonstrate our common pledge towards environmentally and socially responsible choices.”
About the Forest Stewardship Council
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an independent, nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. It provides certification services, trademark guarantees and standard setting for environmental, social and corporate partners. Formally established in 1994, it is widely regarded as one of the most important environmental initiatives.
The FSC label on paper or wood products marks that the timber used in the making of that item comes from forests managed according to international standards that aim to protect the environment and the forests in their entirety, including wild life, local communities, workers and indigenous people, whilst supporting fair labor and trade practices. This is what consumers stand for and support when buying a product marked FSC. They aren’t just buying a product; they are fulfilling a promise today and for generations to come.
