Why Is Chain of Custody Right For Your Business?


Focused on:

  • Chain Of Custody
  • Sustainability

Date: 16 June


Time: 3PM London / 4PM Paris / 9AM Chicago

Join us to learn more about Chain of Custody and Sustainability for the next decade.

With increasing consumer demand for products from responsibly managed sources, business interest in Chain of Custody certification has soared in recent years.

Implementing Chain of Custody (CoC) is a process of achieving traceability of a product from source to its final destination through all stages of production. CoC is therefore for companies who handle, manufacture or trade in fibre-based products such as paper, paper packaging and food service items or printed material.

As part of a fibre sourcing strategy, gaining FSC and/or PEFC Chain of Custody certification offers your business several important benefits:

  • Competitive advantage
  • Access to New Markets
  • Sustainability leadership
  • Risk management and due diligence
  • Sourcing and supply assurance

Please join our webinar on Tuesday. June 16th at 3PM BST, 4PM CET and 9AM CDT to hear more and really understand how Sustainability in general and Chain of Custody in particular can dramatically impact and improve your business.
