FSC Certification: It's Back
A few years ago chain-of-custody certification was all the rage in the in-plant community. Then the recession came along and spoiled everything. With budget cutbacks and declining print volumes, it seemed that being green was no longer a top priority for struggling in-plants.
But sustainability is slowly returning to the spotlight. One in-plant helping to put it there is University of Arkansas Little Rock Printing Services. The operation recently attained Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain-of-custody certification, becoming the first state printing agency in Arkansas to get FSC certified.
In the March issue of In-plant Graphics, we talk with Director Chuck Werninger about why he felt it was important to demonstrate responsible environmental stewardship—even when the in-plant was not being required to do so.
