Control systems for wood supply chains:
FSC and PEFC sustainable forest management standards.
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes or the Pan-European Forest Certification process)
seek nature-friendly and economical management of forests that maintain a balance between environmental, social and economic interests. Paper or product with the FSC or PEFC designation indicates the origin of the wood from a forest managed according to the principles of sustainable forest management - logging has not taken place illegally, the forest ecosystem has not been damaged during the logging works, and no illegal or child labor has been used.
The control systems of FSC and PEFC supply chains and the corresponding documentation make it possible to monitor the use of certified material through the various processing stages, from the growing tree in the forest to the marketed final product.
As the holder of FSC and PEFC supply chain certificates, Kroonpress can offer the customer the opportunity to print the FSC logo and/or slogans and public statements or the PEFC logo on their products.
