The „program to acknowledge forest certification systems“ is known to be the biggest instituion to ensure and market sustainable forestry through an independent certification system. Wood products, which carry the PEFC-logo, come from a verifiable ecologically, economically and socially sustainable forestry. The entire production, from the raw material up to the finished end product is certified and controlled by independent consultants. In the beginning created as an European system, the PEFC is working worldwide for an environmentally friendly and sustainable forestry.
The Forest Stewardship Council®(FSC®) is an international organisation suported by NGOs. It makes sure, that no gene-modified wood from deforestation will be used for paper making and guarantees that employee rights will be protected in forest enterprises. Only certified printing companies are allowed to use the logo in their printing material. The handling of FSC paper is controlled through certified processes.

With an IT-system for sufficient carbon management, among others for CO2 reporting procedure, Climate Partner creates the possibility to determin exactly how much CO2 was consumed per order, which for example accumulates while producing a printing product. For compensation a worldwide project will be supported with in same extent, which was created specifically for reduction of CO2 greenhouse gas. A formula is calculating the usage in Euro and is added to the order. This amount is transfered directly to Climate Partner.
