Achieving triple chain-of-custody forestry certifications at our facility provides assurance to our customers that our products come from responsible, non-controversial sources.
The ISO14001:2004 standard requires organizations to take a hard look at all areas where its activities have an environmental impact. It shows what an organization is doing to minimize harmful effects on the environmental performance.
Our paper products are produced in facilities that obtain certification to the internationally recognized ISO14001, a comprehensive environmental management system. Therefore, all of the base stock in our carbonless products is also ISO 14001 certified.
Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) Certification
FSC® is the only forest certification that verifies claims from the forest all the way to the final product through its Chain-of-Custody process. The FSC® operates according to strict principles that closely reflect our own.
Using 18,200 tons of paper from FSC®-certified companies each year, we found it crucial for Nekoosa to become certified as well. Nekoosa’s facility is certified to the standards to the FSC®, meaning that we can source and track wood and fiber from FSC®-certified, well-managed forests. This earned our facility FSC® chain-of-custody certification (SGS-COC-004661). Having passed a rigorous audit, Nekoosa also offers a full fine of FSC®-certified premium digital coated papers.
Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®) Certification
SFI® Chain-of-Custody certification extends to the marketplace by tracking fiber content from certified lands through production and manufacturing to the end product.
Nekoosa’s internal processes and procedures that track SFI® certified raw materials earned our company SFI® chain-of-custody certification (SGS-COC-0955523). In addition, Nekoosa is the only company to offer both offset and digital SFI® certified carbonless papers.
