Internationally renowned stationery company, Pukka Pads, has achieved full FSC accreditation for its UK-based production company.

As a modern and progressive group of companies, Pukka Pads has a responsibility to be aware of its impact on the environment and has worked tirelessly to achieve FSC accreditation after it acquired Grimsby-based, Cardinal Brands late last year.

Commenting on the accreditation, Pukka Pads’ managing director, Chris Stott, said: “Until now only the Pukka Pads production facility in China was fully FSC certified. This new certification in the UK marks another progressive step forward for the company, it has allowed us to dramatically improve the availability and costings of our FSC approved products for all of our customers in the UK and Europe.

“FSC is a fantastic organisation. Using paper from sustainable sources and ensuring the planting of new trees has always been important to Pukka Pads; it is a crucial part of eliminating our impact on the environment and also helps to secure the supply of paper for future generations. Pukka Pads is an environmentally aware and friendly company, I am very proud to be able to say that our main production facility in the UK is now fully FSC certified.”

FSC is an independent, not for profit, non-government organisation established to support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests.
