Across the globe, leading brands trust Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) mark on their packaging, ensuring all paper materials are sourced responsibly.
Consumers are paying more and more attention to their purchasing decisions when it comes to packaging. According to a recent survey of consumers from the US & UK by Globalwebindex, the percentage of consumers who are willing to pay more for eco-friendly packaging has grown from 47% to 59% in just seven years. The Globescan survey found that 50% of the surveyed consumers worldwide (a total of 10,000 consumers were surveyed from 13 countries) recognise the FSC label and they trust that FSC is effective in protecting forests.
FSC is the world’s most trusted sustainable forest management solution.
As the original pioneers of forest certification, FSC has over 25 years of
experience in setting the gold standard for sustainable forest management.
Paper and paperboard made with forest-fibres are popular packaging materials to protect goods and provide product information. However, these materials can sometimes be the product of deforestation or poor forestry practices. In that case, they pose a threat not only to the world’s forests but also to businesses and brand reputation.
Consumers are worried about climate change. They are aware of the link between sustainable management and the preservation of forests – one of the world’s most precious resources. The role of forests in mitigating climate change is also widely recognised. Consumers expect companies to be a part of the solution, and to sell products made with sustainable and responsibly sourced materials. As consumers’ demand for responsible products grows, brands that drive sustainability forward are thriving too.
The FSC certification system can help to secure a long-term source of paper and other forest products through sustainable management of forests. FSC can help businesses demonstrate their commitment to sustainability to their customers.
When it comes to forest-based products, FSC certification is the most trusted
Our application for FSC as an independent company is on the way, but all of our paper box suppliers has their individual FSC licenses. This gives us confidence that all paper materials are sourced from responsible forestry. Alternatively your company can apply for an independent "FSC Promotional License" similar to what big brands are doing like L’Oréal Paris.
FSC works in close collaboration with retailers and brand owners, packaging producers (like us) and converters to help them communicate their commitment to FSC certification and increase awareness around sustainable forestry and its benefits. This will help increase awareness around sustainable forestry and its benefits through your brand. (source)
