Business Momentum can provide highly cost effective training in FSC® Chain of Custody, allowing you to achieve rapid implementation of practical and simple systems in order to meet the requirements of the FSC Chain of Custody standard. The process is quick and easy, using ready-made templates to set up the system, hence minimising costs. Only those organisations that have FSC chain of custody certification can legally use FSC labelling on their products.
Why FSC? Increasingly, printers are being asked by their clients to secure responsibly sourced materials and, more specifically, paper and timber which is Forest Stewardship Council® certified. Whilst anyone can claim to purchase FSC certified paper, only those printers that operate within an FSC certified chain of custody can actually verify this to their customers.
FSC certification helps small and medium sized print businesses to:
take the first step for an environmental accreditation
to comply with tender criteria and legislation for the environment. It is now becoming more and more essential for business to achieve the FSC Chain of Custody standard
Paul Stokes, of Business Momentum, is also a director of The Group Scheme, the UK's fastest growing FSC Chain of Custody group scheme for the Paper, Publishing and Print sectors.
Membership of The Group Scheme is open to print related businesses with 15 or fewer employees. Fees for membership of the group scheme are available on request.
Who are FSC? FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. It was founded in 1993 in response to public concern about deforestation and demand for a trustworthy wood-labelling scheme. There are national working groups in more than 50 countries including the UK. FSC UK is a registered charity. It is supported by NGOs including WWF, Greenpeace and the Woodland Trust. FSC is not responsible for the content of any training offered by Business Momentum Where companies fall outside the Group Scheme criteria above, Business Momentum can prepare them for compliance with the standard, and can arrange for assessment via an FSC accredited certification body.
