The CFCC and PEFC logos can now be seen together on a product for the first time in China, with the launch of Asia Symbol’s “Paper One” copy paper in early June.
By displaying both logos together, the company can now immediately demonstrate its commitment to sustainable forest management to both Chinese and international markets.
“The launching of Asia Symbol’s certified products carrying the CFCC and PEFC combined logo has set a good example to companies in the paper manufacturing sector of China to pursue sustainable development,” said Mr. Wang Wei, Chairperson of China Forest Certification Council (CFCC) and Executive Deputy Director General of Science and Technology Development Center of State Forestry Administration (SFA). “We look forward to seeing many more China-made paper products going global with a green passport of forest certification.”
To mark the occasion, Asia Symbol was presented with their CFCC Logo Usage Certificate and PEFC Chain of Custody certificate during a special celebratory launching event in early June. Attended by representatives from CFCC, PEFC China Initiative, Asia Symbol (Guangdong) Paper Co., Ltd, RGE and Forest Certification Research Center of SFA, as well as media such as China Green Times, China Business News and Consumption Daily, the event came to a close with the representatives from CFCC and PEFC receiving boxes of the newly-launched copy paper as a gift from the company.
