With FSC-certified natural rubber, you’re giving environmentally conscious consumers what they want. But providing sustainable natural rubber is also a win for your company and the health of our forests.
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.
See how FSC helps the rubber industry verify sustainable sourcing at every step in the supply chain.
