As producers of paper based products, BPC UK take our responsibilities to the environment very seriously and are continually looking for ways to improve our environmental impact.
For a long time, all of our paper supplies have been acquired from Forest Stewardship Council certified suppliers, meaning that all of our till rolls, thermal rolls, transport tickets and other paper products are sourced from approved suppliers subscribing to the Forest Stewardship Council’s principles, helping to ensure that our forests are alive for generations to come.
BPC UK have started the process to achieve FSC “chain of custody” recognition, ensuring that customers can be confident that all paper products purchased from BPC UK are ethically sourced from environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable managed forests.
By only sourcing paper from suppliers that subscribe to the Forestry Stewardship Council’s 10 Principles, BPC UK are helping to ensure sustainable forestry that conserves ecosystems and supports workers and indigenous people while maintaining high conservation values.
