We can be very demanding and I don’t see that ever not being the case. In order to be nominated, and then to become one of our finalist is quite a tribute to the outstanding vendors we have selected to do business with.”

Huston Patterson Earns Chain-of-Custody Certifications

DECATUR, ILL. – Huston Patterson Corporation recently earned the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) chain-of-custody certifications. 

“These certification processes took over a year to achieve,” said Huston Patterson Vice President of Manufacturing Donald Ellis. “Chain-of-Custody tracks paper products throughout their life cycle beginning with proper forestry management all the way to consumption by the end-user.” 

The FSC has developed a set of principles and criteria for responsible forest management that is consistently applied to all FSC-certified forests worldwide. The program certifies wood products recognized as coming from "well-managed" forests adhering to strict environmental and socio-economic standards. 

SFI is a program based on nine principles that address economic, environmental, cultural and legal issues, in addition to a commitment to continuously improve sustainable forest management. 

PEFC is a global organization for the assessment of national forest certification schemes developed in a multi-stakeholder process. 

These national schemes build upon the inter-governmental processes for the promotion of sustainable forest management, a series of ongoing mechanisms supported by 149 governments in the world and covering 85 percent of the world's forest area. 

“We’re happy to do our part to better the environment. It’s not just a good business decision, it’s the right thing for our future generations to come”, says Ellis.
