PF Concept UK successfully passes FSC® certification. The Chain-of-Custody certification ensures the traceability of the raw materials used and thus guarantees responsible forest management.

Blackpool, June 7, 2021.- The UK paper production of PF Concept, Europe’s leading supplier of promotional and gift items, has recently passed the FSC audit. PF Concept UK has been using FSC certified paper for its range of paper products for many years. The additional FSC certification (C166462) guarantees a responsible and transparent supply and production chain by also auditing the ordering processes, IT systems, warehouse management, staff training and health and safety in the workplace. The Chain-of-Custody certification applies to the majority of paper products manufactured at PF Concept UK.

„We are delighted that our facilities in Blackpool have successfully passed the FSC audit. We are proud to be officially FSC certified and able to display the FSC logo,“ said Phil Morgan, CEO/Country Manager PF Concept UK & Ireland. „This gives our customers the assurance that the raw materials we use for our many paper products come from responsibly managed forests.“

The PF Concept website and shop has been updated to allow customers to identify all FSC certified products quickly and easily on one landing page. Customers will also be able to brand their promotional items with the FSC logo.
„PF Concept takes its role as a sustainable and responsible manufacturer of promotional and gift items very seriously,“ explains Ralf Oster, CEO of PF Concept. „Part of our holistic approach, which is laid down in a concrete roadmap, are of course all useful certifications of our products and production sites. In addition to FSC certification, our sustainability strategy also includes, for example, GOTS certification, the GRS Global Recycled Standard and OEKO-TEX standards as well as BSCI-audited factories.”
