Unisource Worldwide, Inc., one of the leading distributors of paper, packaging and facility supplies in North America, has announced that Porcelain Ultra – a Unisource exclusive premium coated paper brand – is now Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certified. In addition, Porcelain Ultra is certified to comply with the European Union (EU) Eco-label standards.
With FSC certification, newly manufactured Porcelain Ultra is compliant with the set of principles and criteria for responsible forest management that is consistently applied to all FSC certified forests worldwide. FSC certification certifies wood products recognized as coming from “well-managed” forests and other controlled sources adhering to strict environmental and socioeconomic standards.
The EU Eco-label carries the distinguished approvals of a multi-national third-party verification system and focuses on ensuring that Porcelain Ultra is manufactured under very strict environmental guidelines monitoring the use of chemicals, energy consumption, emissions to the air and water, and waste management.
“Porcelain Ultra FSC certified paper is now arriving at Unisource stocking locations,” said Thomas Drechsler, Product Category Manager for Unisource. “The addition of FSC Chain-of-Custody certification for Porcelain Ultra is a significant additional attribute for this well-known and extremely popular premium coated paper brand,” he said, “and this offering helps Unisource meet the growing needs of our customers for socially and environmentally responsible products.”
