FSC® Certified Products

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) sets forth principles, criteria, & standards for the wood fiber industry that span economic, social, and environmental concerns. FSC was created to change the dialogue about and the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. FSC standards for forest management have now been applied in over 57 countries around the world.

Appleton Coated is Forest Stewardship Council certified by the Rainforest Alliance.

What does FSC certification mean?
FSC certification means that a product has passed through a complete "chain of custody" from an FSC-certified forest, to an FSC-certified paper manufacturer, to an FSC-certified merchant, and an FSC-certified printer. Each part of the chain has its own standards for compliance.

The Utopia® line of coated papers offers the broadest range of FSC-certified coated products. FSC is also standard on Utopia Inkjet, Utopia Inkjet PE, Ethos Uncoated Inkjet 100% PCRF, and Ethos Uncoated Offset 100% PCRF. The following chart indicates products that are FSC certified, and products it can be added to for a small upcharge. Consult mill for details.
