Chain of Custody Certification
Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™)
Building on its role as a leader in environmentally sound printing practices, Quad's print sites in North America have certifications from the world's three leading forest management programs: the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™).
Quad was one of the first national commercial printers to receive chain-of-custody certification from the FSC in 2004 and, now, with the SFI and PEFC certifications added, Quad vastly expands the pool of forest-certified paper suppliers from which its clients can choose.
FSC, SFI and PEFC are the world’s leading independent, nonprofit, non-government organizations devoted to the responsible management of the world’s forests. To gain forestry certification from these groups, companies must submit to a rigorous third-party audit of purchasing practices and control systems.
Quad successfully demonstrated its ability to meet these strict compliance requirements in multiple areas, including chain of custody – a measure to track wood through the supply chain, from a certified forest through the end-user of the certified product.
By offering new procurement opportunities across an environmentally responsible, global supply chain, Quad can meet both its business and social objectives.
