FSC Chain of Custody
TPG can provide highly cost effective training in the Chain of Custody standard to allow you to achieve rapid implementation of practical and simple systems in order to meet the requirements of the FSC® COC standard. The process is quick and easy, using ready-made templates to set up the system, and so minimise costs. Only those organisations that have FSC chain of custody certification can legally use FSC labelling on their products.
TPG Training and Consultancy have a national network of experienced trainers and advisors all with experience specific to the Print, Media, Constrution and Timer industry who understand all the processes, technologies and materials of the Sector and who offer a practical and realistic approach to achieving certification.
Why do FSC?
Increasingly companies are being asked by their clients to secure sustainably sourced materials and, more specifically, paper and timber which is Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) certified.
Organisations are also realising that having chain of custody, and being able to offer FSC certified material, is a real business opportunity.
It helps companies:
- Take the first step for an environmental accreditation
- Helps companies win business
- It is now becoming more and more essential for business to achieve FSC to comply with tender criteria and legislation for the environment
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 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.
