Blackmore, a marketing-specialist printer, was awarded two major certifications (FSC and PEFC) last week, only received by 70 other printers in the UK to date, which demonstrate their commitment to greener printing practices.

The two environmental certifications are the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). Demand for companies to gain these certifications has grown tremendously in the last few years and they confirm Blackmore fulfills the strict criteria set aside by these organisations; ensuring paper has come from a forest which is well managed according to environmental, social and economical standards.

As one of only 70 printers that adhere to both environmental policies, Blackmore is one of only a few in their market place to offer FSC and PEFC stocks and full audit trail. The FSC certification confirms that the paper has been tracked from the forest through to the end product. It has become the most recognisable sustainable forestry logo with consumers due to its backing by amongst others Greenpeace.

The PEFC award certifies timber and paper products come from responsibly managed forests. The company has a dedicated team member assigned to ensure they comply with all aspects of the standard and use the certifications appropriately.

Blackmore Ltd’s sales director Aubrey Aviss stated: “It’s fantastic to be recognised with these certifications and it confirms our status as one of the leading green printers in the UK. It’s really exciting for our clients to be able to feature the FSC and PEFC logos on their print jobs as they can prove their commitment to responsible manufacturing to their end customer. We are one of the few print companies to be able to provide and advise on this service.”
