A. HATZOPOULOS S.A. has obtained the FSC® chain-of-custody (CoC) certification from TÜV Austria Hellas (TAH-COC-007842).
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is a global, non-profit and non-governmental organization dedicated to the objective of promoting worldwide forest management that respects environment and social values. FSC defines standards based on agreed principles for responsible forest stewardship that are supported by environmental, social, and economic stakeholders. The organization also conducts audits through independent organisations to ensure certified members along the entire supply chain follow rigorous controls, management, and reporting practices.
Thanks to the FSC® Chain of Custody certification A. HATZOPOULOS S.A. is able to produce and supply flexible packaging materials with FSC-certified paper, tracking and tracing fibres directly from the forest to the final packaging product through every step of the manufacturing process. As a result, we provide a credible assurance that our customers are purchasing packaging products sourced from responsibly managed forests, addressing the growing consumer demand for environmentally friendlier packaging.
Today, forest-based products are everywhere. These products, such as paper for packaging, are a great example of materials that can be reused and recycled, hence extending their life, and further contributing to circular economy. Moreover, consumers have high expectations that the forest-based products they buy are sourced responsibly and do not contribute to deforestation. Requesting FSC® certified products contributes to the development of a sustainable system that promotes good forest management, avoiding excessive utilization and respecting the rights of the peoples and workers in the areas concerned. The FSC label on a finished product signals that the materials used during its production have met the chain of custody requirements at every step in the supply chain, from sourcing to distribution. Labelling products and promoting them with FSC trademarks, therefore, ensures identification and helps today’s environmentally-conscious consumers make informed decisions about the products and materials they purchase.
