Forest Stewardship Council

Forests For All Forever - Forest Stewardship Council

FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

The FSC Principles and Criteria provide a foundation for all forest management standards globally, including the FSC US National Standard (v1.0) that guides forest management certification in the U.S.

Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification

PEFC Forest Certification

PEFC, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, is a leading global alliance of national forest certification systems. As an international non-profit, non-governmental organization, we are dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management through independent third-party certification.

We endorse national forest certification systems developed through multi-stakeholder processes and tailored to local priorities and conditions. We believe that forest certification needs to be local; this is why we choose to work with national organizations to advance responsible forestry. Forest certification is at our core. We provide forest owners, from the large to the small, with a tool to demonstrate their responsible practices, while empowering consumers and companies to buy sustainably.

A membership organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, we have more than 80 members located around the world, including national certification systems, NGOs, labour unions, business, trade associations, forest owner organizations and committed individuals. Our 55 national members are independent, national organizations that develop and implement the PEFC system within their country. While our 31 international stakeholder members include companies, organizations and associations whose principles and objectives are in support of ours.

In 1999, small- and family forest owners from Europe came together to create a forest certification system that would enable them to demonstrate their excellence in sustainable forest management. 20 years on, PEFC is the largest forest certification system in the world!

IDEAlliance G7 Certification

IDEAlliance G7 Master Printer

IDEAlliance is a pioneering graphic communications industry association. We engage partners across the entire supply chain, making us different from other industry associations. We create solutions to workflow barriers, using real-world standards and guidelines. We then go a step further, simplifying the complexity of our workflow improvements by training and certifying your team, and by certifying the systems and facilities essential to your business.

We have created standards-based, automatable processes, enabling every part of the print supply chain to change, grow, and prosper.

The pace of change for the graphic communications field is accelerating.

At Idealliance, our job is to help everyone in the print and packaging supply chain not only cope with that change but also embrace and profit from it.

The ideal outcome for graphic communicators is to achieve cost-effective, reproduceable color on any material, and to have dynamic workflows, using any print process, anywhere in the world. To that end, we offer extensive online and in-person training and certification programs for students and professionals. We are the world’s leading certifier of systems and facilities to prove they can meet those standards and allow every part of the print and packaging supply chain to reduce operating costs and save time to maximize profitability.
