In April of 2008, Colortech became a certified FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) Supplier. This allows us to use FSC trademarks on FSC certified paper. The idea of the FSC trademark is to guarantee that the product comes from responsible sources – environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable.
FSC is an international non-profit membership-based organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. It brings people together to find solutions to issues created by bad forestry practices. It also rewards good forest management.
It is the first worldwide certification system established for forests and forest products. This voluntary market promotes better forest management and directly or indirectly addresses issues such as illegal logging, deforestation, and global warming. It also has positive impacts on economic development and environmental conservation. FSC works to ensure the permanent existence of forest areas through responsible forest management and conservation.
