FD Using FSC Certified Paper

Het Financieele Dagblad (FD) is a Netherlands-based newspaper that was awarded  the Dutch FSC Award last month for their commitment to sustainable forest management.

The FSC is the most well-known body that provides independent evaluation of the sustainability of a forest management scheme for countries, organizations, or any other body that owns and manages a forest for commercial purposes. Forest managements that pass the FSC’s stringent evaluation criteria are awarded a certificate that affirms the responsible management of a forest.

FD is one of the first newspapers in the world to be printed on Forest Stewardship Council Certified paper. With 2.5 million kilos of paper used every year, and a history that stretches back to the 18th century, the move to print their newspapers using FSC certified paper is a strong statement of commitment towards sustainability.

Hopefully, others will follow their example.
