KODAK said a portfolio of its photo and fine art papers is now FSC-certified, verifying that they are sourced from responsibly managed forests that ensure trees are replanted and that wildlife, local communities and the environment are not harmed.
“Brand Management Group (BMG), the brand licensee for KODAK Wide-format Media, is proud to announce that a portfolio of KODAK photo and fine art papers is now FSC®-certified,” said a press release.
“The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit organization that promotes environmentally sound, socially aware, and successful management of the world's forests. Media that carries the prestigious FSC-certified label are certified to be sourced from responsibly managed forests that ensure trees are replanted and that wildlife, local communities, and the environment are protected.”
Kodak said benefits of offering FSC-certified paper include: “Enhance your business' image by demonstrating a commitment to sustainable printing; increase revenue by capturing the growing market of eco-conscious consumers; differentiate your company as sustainable and use this competitive advantage; environmentally responsible businesses are looking for the FSC® logo; FSC-certified paper is fast becoming the norm in the print industry; get the assurance you are doing your part in protecting the world's forests; help in the employment of indigenous workers and guarantee against human rights abuses.”
