Scientific Certification Systems Recognizes GTREE® Paper with Forest Stewardship Council™ Chain of Custody Certification


G3 EnterprisesMODESTO, Calif. (January 27, 2014) — G3 Label Division announced that it has earned the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) Chain of Custody certification from Scientific Certification Systems, one of the world’s leading FSC certifiers and one of FSC’s founding members. FSC provides third-party certification confirming that materials sold as Forest Stewardship Council™ certified are harvested from well-managed forest operations.

G3 Label Division is a supplier of premium labels to the wine and spirits industries and is FSC certified on GTREE 100% Post-Consumer Waste premium wine label stock. G3 will have GTREE paper available at its booth, #443, at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento, January 29-30.

The FSC label ensures that the fiber used to make the label has been tracked from certified re-pulping facilities (post-consumer waste paper that is recycled) all the way through the supply chain to G3 for the production of the labels.

G3 takes supplier responsibility seriously and holds its GTREE paper suppliers accountable for the source of their raw materials and requires third-party verification that the suppliers are in compliance with the FSC standards, says Brendan Kinzie, senior director of G3 Label Division.

Scientific Certification Systems is the leader in environmental and sustainability certification.
