November 7, 2007 -- Wheatons and Greaves have become the latest Polestar companies to be awarded FSC accreditation, bringing the total number across the group to seven.
With greener production gaining momentum across magazine publishing, Andy Reynoldson, managing director of Polestar Greaves, says: 'We are delighted to have our Chain of Custody status, which means we can work with existing and potential customers who want to go down the FSC route.'
This view is shared by Andrew Lee, managing director of Polestar Wheatons, who adds: 'Some of our customers are looking into the environmental credentials of their suppliers, so we are well placed to work with them on this. It also broadens our opportunities with our sister companies who already have FSC, as we can work with them where appropriate.'
Polestar Wheatons and Polestar Greaves join Polestar Petty, Polestar Sheffield, Polestar Direct, Polestar Chromoworks and Polestar Chantry, who have all gained FSC accreditation in the last 12 months.
