FSC-Certified Packaging and Boxes

Zenpack Makes FSC-Certified Products

As a packaging company, paper and cardboard are at the core of everything we do. They are the literal building blocks of our business. We’ve been working with these materials for most of our careers, and we know more than anyone the significance of promoting sustainable forest management. That’s why we went through the process of achieving Chain of Custody Certification, which enables us to offer Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper products.

We believe that eco-packaging goes beyond the surface level of just materials. It is a chain of custody that follows through every step of the supply chain. From sourcing and production to processing and finally shipping, we strive to ensure that throughout the process, we minimize our impact on the environment as much as possible.

We have always recognized the importance of independent certification in transitioning to a sustainable future. The FSC certification offers a measurable impact on securing biodiversity and provides peace of mind to our consumers seeking sustainable packaging.

What FSC Certification Means

We’ve covered the subject extensively before, but for those unaware, being FSC certified means that we have been assessed and verified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a global organization that certifies forests based on rigorous standards of responsible forest management.

Forests play an irreplaceable role in human society. In addition to the majestic landscapes they create and the recreational value they offer, forests are invaluable to wildlife habitat, promoting clean water, preventing soil erosion, and mitigating the effects of climate change.

The FSC organization works with local communities to uphold forest management standards on both public and private lands, aiming to protect water quality, preserve old-growth forests, and eliminate hazardous chemicals.

FSC certified packaging covers a wide range of concerns such as fair wages, working conditions, and community engagement. The fundamental principle of FSC products is to track the chain of custody for a product, ensuring sustainability throughout its journey from raw materials to the final product reaching customers’ hands.

Under our Chain of Custody certification, we must ensure that our packaging products are traceable from the forest all the way through the supply chain. Our raw materials, printed packaging, and everything in between must remain uncontaminated by non-FSC material, which means we take steps to keep these materials separated and identified. FSC holds us accountable with yearly self-reporting and periodic audits.

This is our official FSC trademark, which includes a unique ID code specific to Zenpack. We have the right to print this same trademark on our FSC certified packaging. To learn more about our certification, search for “Zenpack” in the FSC Public Dashboard.

The Benefits of Using FSC-Certified Paper

By choosing Forest Stewardship Council certified paper, we can ensure that paper comes from responsibly managed forests, while promoting environmental conservation and social responsibility.

Consumers also have the assurance that the packaging they purchase comes from forests that are responsibly managed and meets high environmental and social standards, providing them with confidence in our dedication to sustainability and ethical practices across our supply chain.


For as long as humanity has existed, forests have helped to provide balance in the ecosystem. They are part of the lifeline of all living things on planet Earth.

FSC certified boxes are our answer to being part of the collective effort in conserving forests and combating climate change. With FSC’s far-reaching impact and rigorous standards throughout the supply chain, we believe the certification is a testament to our commitment to sustainability.

Globally, more than 1,800 forest management certificates have been issued worldwide by FSC, covering over 230 million hectares of forest.


The FSC certification of our product indicates our commitment to sustainable sourcing practices. Our FSC certified packaging not only safeguards forests by reducing reliance on new materials but also minimizes waste sent to landfills.

The FSC label has a measurable impact on the forests and guarantees that all forest-derived materials are entirely recycled or reclaimed. This approach spares forests from further harvesting, aligning with circularity objectives while lessening ecological strain.


Sustainability is no longer a vague idea pursued solely by well-meaning organizations. Sustainability awareness has been steadily growing among consumers.

Surveys have shown that 66% of consumers expect companies to ensure that the wood/paper products and packaging they sell do not contribute to deforestation, while a global average of 64% of consumers believe that independent sustainability certifications are important tools for change.

The FSC logo is recognized by 56% of consumers worldwide. Of those who recognize the logo, 62% would choose FSC-certified products over non-certified equivalents.
