Forest Stewardship Council®
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to
promoting responsible management of the world's forests. It was founded in 1993 in response to public concern about
deforestation and demand for a trustworthy wood-labelling scheme. The FSC runs a global forest certification
system with two key components: forest management and chain of custody certification. This system allows consumers
to identify, purchase and use timber and forest products produced from well-managed forests. The certification means
that the paper printed.com uses for FSC labelled products is from responsible sources.
ISO 9001 is a framework for business quality management system. It aims to help business from all industries to
achieve success through improved customer satisfaction, staff motivation and continual improvement. It helps ensure
that all of printed.com's staff understand the processes needed to deliver excellent services to customers. The
accreditation is used by more than 750,000 organisations in 161 countries.
The ISO 14001 environmental management standard exists to help businesses minimise how their operations negatively
affect the environment, comply with applicable laws, regulations and other environmentally oriented requirements.
The standard has helped printed.com put together its own environmental management system, and is helping us to
continually improve our environmental performance.
