In addition to being a Chain-of-Custody Certified Printer, we have implemented many "green" practices in all areas of our manufacturing process including the use of vegetable oil-based inks and waste recycling programs.
Flower City Printing, Inc. was awarded CoC certifications through FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) and PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) on February 1, 2008. We can verify that papers used to manufacture printed products are made from certified, well-managed forests and not from illegally harvested areas. CoC certification is the process of tracking and recording the possession and transfer of wood and fiber from the forests of origin through the different stages of production to the end user. FCP® has systems in place to support the CoC process and to provide assurances to customers that products meet all FSC/SFI/PEFC criteria. We are audited yearly; the certifications will remain valid for five years. Click the link below to read more:
