Environmental management system (FSC)
WHAT IS FSC® CERTIFICATION?
FSC® certification is the principal mechanism of guaranteeing the origin of wood or paper and LUBE INDUSTRIES has decided to use this certification to publicise its commitment to the environment and support of the fight against uncontrolled deforestation and illegal cutting down of forests.
With FSC® certification, LUBE INDUSTRIES is promoting forest management that is respectful of the environment, socially useful and economically sustainable. Responsible forest management means not only protecting the natural environment and guaranteeing biodiversity and ecological processes, but also offering real benefits for populations, local communities and workers and economic efficiency
HOW DOES THE FSC® SYSTEM WORK?
Chain of Custody (CoC) certification guarantees traceability of materials from FSC® certified forests and is essential in order to be allowed to apply FSC® labels on products. Possession of valid FSC® certification by each party on the Chain of Custody is a necessary condition to be able to sell a product as certified. Thanks to this certification, an organisation can provide the market with a guarantee on the origin of the wood or paper used for its products and therefore demonstrate, in a correct, transparent and controlled manner, its active contribution to responsible forest management.
