UH Printing Services is now officially a certified Forest Stewardship Council® printer, a distinguished designation that demonstrates its commitment to sustainability. By receiving the certification, the department will do its part to promote and use responsibly-produced paper for printing projects.
The Forest Stewardship Council is an international organization that promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forest. UH Printing Services worked extensively with Printers Green Resource LLC and the Rainforest Alliance to complete the required FSC audit and training in order to gain the FSC Chain-of-Custody Certification status. The department has incorporated FSC-certified paper into its procedures, which means it is using paper made by companies who help to replant and maintain forests.
