In Otzarreta our projects are subject to the FSC® and PEFC® Chain of Custody Certificates. The application of these certificates guarantees that our activities of printing, finishes and the sale of certified products, including subcontracted activities, are managed in accordance with forestry sustainability criteria.

With this responsible environmental management philosophy, we give the projects significant added value and a high level of sustainability and ecological responsibility.

The use of paper certified with the FSC® and PEFC® stamp contributes to conveying the concept of sustainability for natural resources through our projects and, by extension, that of our clients.

The inclusion of these stamps in the catalogues converts our clients into companies committed to the environment. Our good practice is also theirs.

The implantation of the Chain of Custody system allows providing clients and consumers with the guarantee that during the production of the end product (catalogues, brochures, posters, packaging, etc.) only raw, or intermediate, materials from certified forests have been used. This certification guarantees the future of our forests and their reforestation.

FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) is an independent, non-governmental, international, non-profit organisation created in 1993. The official mission of the Council is to "Promote the suitable environmental management of the world's forests on a socially beneficial and economically feasible basis." People or organisations interested in the sustainable consumption of wood, paper or other forestry by-products can try to obtain an FSC® certification for their products. The FSC® certification is also used to show the sustainable management of forests.
