STI Group Produces Packaging and Displays from Sustainable Forestry
The STI Group's German facilities, the factories in Australia, the UK, Poland and Hungary and its European distribution subsidiary in France are all FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certified
The plants in Australia, the UK, Hungary and Greven (Germany) have received PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) certification as well.
Sustainable use of resources is of growing importance. In the packaging and display field, this means that companies and consumers are attaching more and more importance to ecologically sound solutions. The STI Group has become one of the first companies in Europe to receive the FSC® seal, specifically for the group's German production facilities and European distribution arms.
FSC® stands for "Forest Stewardship Council®". When the FSC® label is printed on a product, it confirms that the product was created in a manner that promotes sustainable forest management – that is, ecologically, socially and economically compatible. This certification of the product chain provides a guarantee to the consumer that wood products with the FSC® logo really do come from a certified and responsibly managed forestry business. Companies who use FSC®-certified material thus have the opportunity to document the responsibility of their actions.
PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) is another internationally oriented standard in pursuit of a single goal: the global improvement of forest usage and maintenance.
