InnerWorkings, Inc. (Chicago), a leading global provider of managed print and promotional solutions for corporate clients, has earned Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certification from the Rainforest Alliance’s SmartWood program. This certification reflects a growing trend in the paper and printing industry of companies making more environmentally and socially responsible supply chain decisions.

“FSC certification is an important part of our overall approach to preserving the sustainability of our environment in the communities we serve. All parties in the Chain-of-Custody play a critical role in supporting responsible forest management,” says Eric D. Belcher, CEO of InnerWorkings. “Our clients are constantly looking to us for guidance in providing them with the latest print-related techniques and alternatives, and FSC certification is a very important step toward a long-term environmental solution.”

The FSC is the global standard-setter in responsible forest management. Chain-of-Custody certification guarantees that wood that comes from certified, responsibly managed forestlands is tracked throughout the supply chain, from the forest to the consumer. Conscientious consumers can look for the FSC logo on wood products to know they are supporting forest management that protects biodiversity and supports local communities.
