FSC® Chain of Custody
Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) Chain-of-Custody (CoC) Certification is an assurance that wood based materials used in products come from forests that meet stringent environmental, social, and economic standards. It is the path taken by raw materials from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of harvesting, processing, manufacturing and distribution. Only products from FSC CoC certified companies can claim the FSC designation, assurance of a socially and environmentally responsible purchasing decision.
FSC CoC Certification is recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED Rating System for environmentally focused design. From a customer perspective, the FSC label represents a promise made; CoC standards are the mechanism FSC uses to ensure that promise is delivered.
Indiana Furniture has been awarded FSC CoC Certification, by GFA Certification, an independent third-party accredited by the FSC to certify companies to their international standards. The certification (certificate number GFA-COC-002183; license code FSC-C110951) is available for most Indiana Furniture products. Contact Customer Service for prices and availability.
