Sustainable Solutions

Through sustainability initiatives, FOCUSales’ manufacturing facilities endeavor to be responsible corporate stewards of the environment and encourage eco-friendly business practices. Use of materials that incorporate alternative fibers, recycled paper, and clean press technologies are parts of the continued efforts to improve the environment and preserve resources needed by future generations.

Accreditations

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). FSC is an international, not-for-profit organization that has developed principles and standards to certify forests and forest products. Their goal is to ensure forests are managed in a responsible manner that makes them a truly renewable resource. Certification is awarded based on an independent audit process to ensure that FSC’s criteria are met. The chain-of-custody process tracks the possession and transfer of wood products from the forest of origin to the end product.  To learn more about FSC, visit www.fsc.org

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) SFI program integrates the perpetual growing and harvesting of trees with the protection of wildlife, plants, soil, water and air quality.  It is based on the premise that responsible environmental behavior and sound business decisions can co-exist to the benefit of landowners, manufacturers, shareholders, customers, the people they serve, the environment and future generations.  To learn more about SFI, visit www.sfiprogram.com.
