FSC® Certification: Our Latest Step Toward A More Sustainable Future


The health of the planet is a big, complex challenge. But the urgency of that challenge can be summed up in one simple statement:

There is no Planet B.

It’ll take all of us to make a difference. From conserving natural resources and cutting carbon emissions to reducing waste through recycling efforts, the collective efforts of governments, the private sector and everyday individuals will be needed to ensure a sustainable future for generations to follow.

New Milestone. Ongoing Commitment.

As a leader in the promotional products industry, we’re committed to doing our part – a commitment that goes beyond offering the largest assortment of eco-friendly and sustainable gifts. Recently, two additional U.S. facilities locations earned certification from the Forest Stewardship Council®, the world’s most trusted organization for sustainable forest management. Locations in Pittsburgh and Miami join our Charlotte location with FSC® Chain-Of-Custody certification, which traces the path of FSC®-certified products from forests through the supply chain, verifying that FSC®-certified material is identified or kept separated from non-certified material.

What it means for you? The Chain-Of-Custody process ensures you and your customers that the FSC®-certified products you buy from us are from responsibly managed forests.

“While we continue to focus on offering our distributor partners the best assortment of eco-friendly and sustainable products, we’ve also evolved our thinking as an organization,” says Neil Ringel, CEO of Polyconcept, parent company to PCNA. “Sustainability has become a key component of every business decision we make. By meeting the rigorous standards required for FSC® Chain-Of-Custody certification at two more of our U.S. locations, we’re once again demonstrating our commitment to making a difference.”
