What is InGreen™?

InGreen is a program which provides Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) group certification for in-plant printers, public printers, private printers and selected other companies dealing in the manufacture or distibution of FSC certified products. Group FSC certification  carries the same credibility and standing as independent certification but costs less because the program spreads the administrative and certification costs out over many members. InGreen is managed by Printers Green Resource LLC. Our FSC group chain-of-custody number is RA-CoC-005902.

What is the Forest Stewardship Council?

FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

Why should your organization become FSC certified?

FSC certification allows you to provide your customers with products that contribute to global conservation, community well-being and economic stability. It enhances your credibility as a sustainable supplier.

What is FSC Chain-of-Custody Certification?

FSC CoC certification is a voluntary process that ensures that the FSC product is genuine and the FSC certified claim on the product is credible and verifiable. Every company handling the product through its production and distribution cycles must be FSC certified for a product to be sold as FSC certified.

What are the benefits of Group Certification through InGreen?

In addition to drastically reduced cost versus single site FSC certification, InGreen provides a tremendous amount of assistance to its members in preparing for certification and in marketing its benefits to their customers. InGreen saves its customers both time and money regarding their FSC certification.

What is the cost of becoming FSC certified through InGreen?

The complete all-inclusive price is $1895.00 annually.

After I sign up, how long will it be before I am FSC certified?

It is really up to you. You can complete the work necessary in two weeks or two months. If you need to meet a certain date, just tell us and we can usually accommodate your request.

What is the procedure for becoming group certified?

1. Provide a purchase order to Printers Green Resource LLC InGreen for “Annual FSC Certification”. Submit full payment. 2. InGreen will provide training and review of the necessary procedures and documentation. 3. Printers Green Resource will perform a physical audit to make sure you are ready to correctly handle FSC orders. 4. Upon passing the audit, you will become a group member and FSC certified.

Is there a deadline for signing up?

New members can join throughout the year in most cases.

Can I add the FSC mark on my print jobs?

You will be allowed to print the FSC mark using the group FSC license number on any FSC job as long as you follow the appropriate procedures.

Are there other marks I can use?

Jobs bearing the FSC mark may also use the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal.   You will also be licensed to use the InGreen mark and tag line.
