FSC® Certified Paper
In 2013, Panther Printing earned Forest Stewardship Council® certification. Established in 1993 as a response to concerns over global deforestation, FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests. FSC certification provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people as well as provide ongoing business value. We feel that FSC certification is the gold standard of programs designed to promote total transparency in the use of sustainable materials and their processing within the printing industry. Panther Printing is proud to offer the FSC logo on selected publications.
The world’s forests meet the social, ecological, and economic rights and needs of the present generation without compromising those of future generations.
Environmentally appropriate forest management ensures that the harvest of timber and non-timber products maintains the forest's biodiversity, productivity, and ecological processes.
Socially beneficial forest management helps both local people and society at large to enjoy long term benefits and also provides strong incentives to local people to sustain the forest resources and adhere to long-term management plans.
Economically viable forest management means that forest operations are structured and managed so as to be sufficiently profitable, without generating financial profit at the expense of the forest resource, the ecosystem, or affected communities. The tension between the need to generate adequate financial returns and the principles of responsible forest operations can be reduced through efforts to market the full range of forest products and services for their best value.
Panther Printing’s FSC Certification was issued by the Rainforest Alliance, an accredited FSC Certification body.
Our FSC Certificate Registration Code is RA-COC-005902.
