FSC Chain of Custody Certification

Conquest Graphics FSC Chain-of-Custody
Get started now!

FSC® CoC certification provides documentation regarding the production of FSC-certified products. Chain-of-Custody certifies the movement of materials from the forest to the end-user, including all successive operations of harvesting, processing, manufacturing, and distribution of forest-sourced products.

Conquest Graphics has attained FSC CoC certification in conjunction with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody standards. Founded in Germany in 1993, the FSC is an international body that helps promote and ensure responsible forestry practices. By virtue of our FSC certification, we are able to document our roles and responsibilities in the "Chain of Custody" which allows paper to be traced from printed product all the way back to the responsibly-managed forests from which raw materials were sourced.

What this means to our customers is that Conquest Graphics has the ability to manufacture printed products that are in compliance with FSC CoC standards and guidelines. It is our promise to you that we are doing our part to support responsible management of forests, and to help promote positive environmental stewardship. Printing companies like Conquest Graphics that have been independently verified for FSC CoC certification are eligible to label their products with the FSC logo. That means we have the ability to manufacture printed products that comply with FSC CoC standards; however, we also manufacture some printed products that do not comply with FSC CoC standards. That way, we can give our customers the choices they need to make the best decisions about their marketing goals.

Being an FSC CoC certified company also allows us to promote our use of FSC-certified papers. At Conquest Graphics, all of our house papers are FSC-certified, elemental chlorine-free, and contain at least 10% post-consumer waste. Post-consumer waste is paper that has gone to the consumer, and was returned back to the manufacturing process through paper recycling.

Why Should I Consider Using FSC-certified Papers and/or Printing the FSC Logo on my Print Projects?

Using FSC-certified papers, and/or printing the FSC logo on your printed pieces demonstrates to your customers, prospects, and other end-users that you care about environmental and social issues, and your commitment to doing your part to promote environmental stewardship around the world.

In fact, survey data provided by the FSC indicates that over 80% of consumers have a favorable opinion of businesses that support environmental causes, and that an increasing number of businesses prefer to purchase environmentally certified products.

Why Should I Buy From an FSC CoC-certified Printing Compnay?

Companies that have been independently certified as FSC CoC-compliant have undergone a rigorous, time-intensive, and expensive process to ensure the integrity of responibly sourced forest materials from harvest through the final manufacturing process. This certification process was supervised by an independent, third-party certification organization, and printing companies must be re-certified via an on-site audit every two years to maintain their compliance.

Don’t be fooled by other online printing companies that claim to be FSC-certified, or promote their use of FSC-certified papers, but are not actually FSC CoC-certified! Look for the FSC CoC certification number. Our certification number is SCS-COC-002504. If an online printing company makes FSC claims, or talks about how they use FSC paper, but doesn’t display their certification number, don’t fall into their “green-washing” trap. Be sure to use a company that has actually been certified, and uses other eco-friendly printing methods like Conquest Graphics.

What are the Advantages of Using FSC-Certified Paper?

Using FSC-certified paper ensures that your printed items were manufactured using materials that were sourced from responsibly managed forests that meet strigent environmental and socioeconomic standards.

When you buy printing, your choice of paper has significant environmental implications, including the preservation of trees and forests, climate change, air and water pollution, and energy efficiency.

When you buy printing from Conquest Graphics, you can rest assured that your project will be printed on paper that was sourced responsibly, because all of our house papers are FSC-certified, elemental chlorine-free, and contain at least 10% post-consumer waste. We even have 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper options for selected products. Conquest Graphics helps our customers do their part to minimize their impact on our environment.
