Responsible Procurement

An environmentally responsible and sustainable procurement policy can be just as beneficial to your business or organization as it is to the environment. Procuring FSC certified paper or wood will simultaneously advance corporate social responsibility efforts while protecting one of our most valuable environmental resources, our forests.

Why have a procurement policy?

Buyers of forest products could be contributing to deforestation. Many organizations have, or are now implementing procurement policies to help safeguard against this.

A wood/paper procurement policy is a good way to ensure everyone in your organization knows what wood/paper is acceptable for use. It can also help you make and meet corporate social responsibility targets.
