Rubber that’s better for forests and people

Natural rubber is an environmentally friendly choice, but only if it’s sourced sustainably. When natural rubber comes from uncertified forests, there is a risk that it contributes to deforestation and human rights abuses.

FSC certification is a proven tool for solving these challenges. It verifies that companies at every step of the supply chain are committed to the environment and improving people’s lives. The FSC logo on the products you make or sell will show the world that you’re part of this commitment.

FSC gives rubber the stamp of approval.

We verify sustainability throughout the entire supply chain.
