FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)
As a film packaging company that uses paper and card as some of its primary materials, we are proud and committed to being FSC certified. The FSC, or the 'Forest Stewardship Council,' are a dedicated, international non-profit that ensures the wood and paper used by companies across the globe is sourced from forests that meet their exceptionally strict environmental standards. With these standards enforced throughout the entire 'chain of custody,' and all wood is inspected and certified at every stage and every piece of wood and paper sourced from an FSC certified forest can be easily traced back to its original source. This level of scrutiny guarantees a product that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable for companies and consumers alike. All of our products here at Wrapid 8 hold the 'tick tree' logo that openly demonstrates our long term commitment to sustainable and responsible forestry that goes right down to protecting the indigenous peoples.
