Responsible Forestry and Print Production

As Take Charge People, we are committed to researching and using production materials that meet the social, ecological, and economic rights and needs of the present and future generations. This is one of the many reasons why Vanguard Direct offers FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)-certified print production.

The Forest Stewardship Council was established in 1993 as a response to global deforestation and is now one of the most important initiatives of the last decade to promote responsible forest management worldwide. FSC certification provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as provide ongoing business value. The Forest Stewardship Council is nationally represented in more than 50 countries around the world.

The FSC chain of custody certification tracks FSC-certified material through the production process, from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing, and distribution. There has been a significant increase in the number of FSC chain of custody certificates in recent years, proving that FSC certification has become a driving factor in market success.

This is just one of the ways that our production coordinators and project managers go green every day at Vanguard Direct. We work on every project to promote responsible green initiatives and teach our clients how to save money and resources by going green.

How do you make sure your team is ecologically responsible with every project you produce?
