The Forest Stewardship Council is a nonprofit entity that supports environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. The FSC body agreed upon a set of principles for responsible forest management and created an auditing system to inspect and verify that a forest was operated in accordance with FSC standards.
FSC Chain of Custody begins with forest management and stops with the end-user, thereby assuring customers that they are buying products sourced directly from responsibly managed forests. FSC independently tracks, traces and identifies wood fibers from the forest through every step of the procurement, manufacturing and printing process, confirming that each supplier in the chain follows rigorous controls, management and reporting practices. To use the FSC label, print buyers must use paper and printers certified by the FSC.

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative is a fully independent, non-profit organization whose SFI 2010-2014 Standard is based on principles and measures that promote sustainable forest management. SFI is the most widely applied forest certification system in North America and, by working closely with conservation groups, local communities, resource professionals and landowners, includes measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk and forests with exceptional conservation value.
To obtain SFI chain of custody certification, users must account for the wood fiber that comes directly from an SFI certified forest, and ensure that the non-certified fiber is not from illegal sources and follow the strict procurement objective in the SFI standard.
