BENSENVILLE, Ill., April 22  -- Boise, Inc. now offers a comprehensive line of communication papers for a variety of printing and converting applications that have earned Chain of Custody certification from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI(R)) or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Boise is committed to following the stewardship principle of managing its business to sustain environmental resources for future generations.

Boise, Inc. maintains certification under four credible independent third-party standards for responsible practices. The company undergoes regular audits to ensure its systems are in compliance with the standards:
