SCS Global Services Celebrates Chain of Custody Clients with 6,000th Certification
EMERYVILLE, Calif., July 20, 2017 /3BL Media/ - SCS Global Services (SCS) has surpassed the milestone of 6,000 Chain of Custody (CoC) certificates issued under the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), certification programs that are crucial for companies in the wood and paper industries to show competitive edge in sustainability, gain broader access to markets, demonstrate the veracity of their claims, and to exercise d
Small landowners are the unsung heroes of the U.S. forest industry. We often think of public forests as the key source of the U.S. wood supply, but in fact, that resource only amounts to about a quarter of the total acreage that is harvested for wood products in the U.S. The rest comprises stock supplied by landowners that have dedicated their acreages to maintaining U.S. forest growth and supply.
The swaths of land that stretch across the southeastern United States are privately held by individual landowners, posing a unique challenge to environmentally-minded companies set on increasing the number of certifed lands. In 2013 Domtar and P&G joined forces, encouraging landowners to certify their lands in order to ensure the health of forests for generations to come.
