The FSC has awarded its 20000th Chain of Custody (CoC) certificate to the French company Oberthur Technologies for its sustainable PaperSIM cards.
It was just September 2009 that the organisation awarded its 15000th CoC certificate – showing the remarkable growth of the sustainable label in a short period of time. It has also awarded over 1000 Forest Management certificates. FSC certification is the most widely recognised sustainable forestry standard and has become a driving factor in market success.
The FSC’s CoC certification tracks FSC certified material through the entire production process, from the forest to the consumer, including all stages of processing, manufacturing and distribution.
