PEFC Certified Paper for the Print, Packaging, and Publishing Industries

In response to increasing print buyer interest in providing assurances of sustainable sourcing to their customers, leading paper merchants are offering a range of PEFC certified papers, with more and more print companies obtaining PEFC Chain of Custody certification.

Ever increasing numbers of publishers and brand owners are opting to use the PEFC logo on their publications to demonstrate responsible paper sourcing, with close to one thousand printers having obtained PEFC Chain of Custody certification in countries such as the United Kingdom.

The PEFC brand is visible at national and international levels, with global publications such as The Economist and publishers and companies from all sectors opting to use the PEFC logo on their publications, brochures, and reports

Why Choose PEFC?

Corporate sustainability policies often seek to ensure that virgin fibre used originates from legal and sustainable sources.

One of the easiest ways of demonstrating that virgin fibre comes from responsibly managed forests is to source from forests that have been independently certified. Certification also ensures that products are tracked through the supply chain.

Furthermore, with PEFC being the first global system to include social requirements in Chain of Custody certification, the basic rights of potentially millions of workers along the supply chain are protected.
