Octopus Products holds the FSC Chain of Custody Certification in both the United States and Canada.
FSC Chain of Custody certification is a voluntary certification system available to supply chain companies who want to demonstrate their commitment to responsible forest management by having their company’s planning, practices, and products independently evaluated against FSC’s Chain of Custody standards. FSC Chain of Custody certification allows companies to label their FSC products, which in turn enables consumers to identify and choose products that support responsible forest management.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international certification and labeling system dedicated to promoting environmentally sound, socially beneficial, and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests. FSC was created in 1993 to help consumers and businesses identify products from well-managed forests. FSC sets standards by which forests are certified, offering credible verification to people who are buying wood and paper products.
FSC Chain of Custody certification is awarded to companies that can track and document FSC certified material through the production process, from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of procurement, processing, manufacturing, fabricating, distribution and sale of certified goods.
