Our impact on the environment is constantly at the forefront of our minds at Paper Bag Co. And as such, we strive to ensure that we do everything we possibly can to ensure that our products and print processes comply with publicly recognised environmental standards such as the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody (CoC) certification.

Who are The Forest Stewardship Council?

The Forest Stewardship Council® is the world’s most trusted forest management solution.

FSC® – The Forest Stewardship Council®, has over 26 years of experience in setting the gold standard for well-managed forest management around the world.

FSC®’s unique democratic standard-setting process enables forest owners, communities and businesses to jointly make decisions on issues impacting forests today and in the future. This ensures inclusivity in finding the best solutions.

Through global standards, unrivalled stakeholder engagement and support from businesses and NGOs, the FSC® are the world’s most credible solution for well-managed forest management; trusted to secure better outcomes for the markets, communities and forests for today and future generations.


Basically, the FSC® Chain of Custody certification verifies that FSC®-certified material has been identified and separated from non-certified and non-controlled material as it makes its way along the supply chain, from the forest to the market.

By accounting for each element of our supply chain, Paper Bag Co are able to verify compliance with FSC® standards in order to obtain FSC® Chain of Custody certification which can be viewed on the official FSC website.
