Green Renewable Resources

The use of renewable resources is becoming increasingly important to reduce society’s dependence on fossil fuels and to ensure the careful management of the earth’s natural resources. In light of these facts, CPC is dedicated to promoting the use of renewable resources, with an emphasis on paper and ink, the two most important consumable of any printing project. CPC is pleased to offer its customers paper sourced from certified forests and inks containing a minimum of 20 percent renewable resources. Upon request, CPC will also employ post-consumer recycled paper, chlorine-free paper and vegetable oil based inks to manufacture printed materials.

In January 2006 CPC partnered with printing companies that have achieved Chain-of-Custody certification with the world’s three leading forest management programs; Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), and the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). A triple certification can be achieved by following a stringent systematic audit of the printer’s facilities, procurement practices and control systems by both the Rainforest Alliance’s SmartWood Program and the Price Waterhouse Coopers Chain-of-Custody Certification program. Forest certification is a way to promote responsible and verifiable forestry practices and provide independent third-party assurance that a forestry operation meets standards set by a certification program. Chain-of-Custody certification is the process of tracking the movement of certifies wood fiber from forest to mill and from mill or merchant to printer. This certification guarantees the integrity of the supply chain and assures customers that the certified goods they buy are genuinely the products of a well-managed forest. A secure Chainof-Custody requires that certified products are identified through the use of labels, segregated and accompanied by appropriate documentation at all stages. By offering our clients the choice of using Chain-of-Custody certified paper, CPC is promoting responsible forest management.
