FSC Certified Products
Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating is commited to conservation and responsible management of resources. We therefore choose to purchase FSC certified paper and print products.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world's forests. With national initiatives in more than 50 countries, the FSC's main tools are standard setting, labeling of forest products and independent certification.
When a company makes the choice to use certified paper for its professionally printed materials, it can request that the printer add the FSC logo to a prominent page. To be able to do so, the printer must have Chain of Custody (CoC) certification to demonstrate that appropriate control systems are in place. The printer must also correctly source the paper.
Paper made from wood-fibre that comes entirely from FSC certified forests is labeled as "FSC 100 percent." Wood from the non-certified forests is often incorporated with certified fibre either from a mix of wood chips at the pulping process, or from wood-pulp when making the paper. The non-certified wood, termed 'FSC controlled wood', has stringent conditions imposed on its source before the paper can be termed "FSC mixed sources" and an FSC label printed. Additionally, there is a label for paper made using recycled fibre.
Carrying the FSC-certification logo on your print products tells the world that you support the highest social and environmental standards in the market where you use paper. Your purchase of FSC-certified paper and print products contribute to conservation, responsible management, and community level benefits for people near the forests that provide your paper.
Alongside the FSC logo, Mitsubishi Electric chooses to display the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Seal or "frog" seal.
The Rainforest Alliance is a founding member of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a pioneer in the global forestry certification and is the world's leading FSC certifier of forest management operations.
The green frog paired with the words "Rainforest Alliance Certified" communicates our company's commitment to sustainability. By using the "frog" seal of approval on our websites, sales and promotional materials, it shows that our company cares about the environment and the social and economic well-being of forest-dependent communities.
