Crownhill Packaging, a leading full-service packaging supplier in North America, has just achieved a major milestone in its commitment to eco-conscious packaging options and sustainability initiatives. The company is now certified to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody (COC) standards, which means that it can now ensure that the paper-based materials used in select projects are sourced from responsibly managed forests.
The FSC is a non-profit organization that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC’s sustainable forestry standards translate into tangible actions that make a positive impact on the world’s forests. Chain of Custody certification is a system for tracking material from the forest to the marketplace, making it easier for consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions based on environmental factors.
Crownhill has taken several other initiatives to support the environment and sustainability. These include offering a wide range of eco-friendly products such as curbside recyclable mailers, compostable paper-based air cushions, and products made from recycled and recyclable paper. The company has also partnered with ClimatePartner to ensure that its digital footprint is climate neutral and has expanded its shipping fleet of short-run vehicles to better manage its carbon footprint.
According to Ken Wong, Vice President of Crownhill Packaging, “FSC Chain of Custody certification is a vital part of our operating philosophy. The ability to track and verify sources of paper-based materials provides yet another layer of veracity to our actions that we know our customers value.”
With over 35 years of experience creating custom packaging solutions for customers of all sizes across North America, Crownhill Packaging is a leading advocate for improving processes and practices in the packaging industry. The company has been recognized for sustainability, innovation, and operational excellence, and the latest FSC COC certification is just one more example of its commitment to environmental support and sustainability.
