Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

HGI Company of Burlington, WI is pleased to announce that it has achieved a companywide Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain of custody paper certification that encompasses all four of its operating divisions.  FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

Ed Miglio, Vice President of Operations, said “I am pleased that HGI’s focus on standardization and shared best practices in all aspects of our operations including; productivity, quality initiatives and environmental responsibility has lead us to achieve our goal of this multi-plant FSC certification.  The audit entailed a thorough review of our internal processes and focused on the training and education of our entire staff to maintain and understand the importance of sustainable forestry in our industry.”

Tom Sikora, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said “We as a company have always strived to be environmentally conscious through our recycling efforts, material usage and print processes. This additional certification however, will allow us to provide our clients with a globally recognized standard of assurance that their printed products come from forests that are managed to meet the strictest criteria of sustainability.  We want our client base, employees and the community to share and understand our vision of social and environmental awareness in everything we do, this achievement is one more step in that process.”

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
With representation in 46 countries, FSC is the only internationally recognized standard setting organization for responsible forest management supported equally by environmental organizations, social groups and the corporate sector.  Each operation is audited at least once a year and must fully comply with all FSC requirements to maintain the certification.
