Sustainability is one of Fortis Trading’s shared corporate values and forms an integral part of how we conduct our business every day. Our commitment consists of voluntary third-party certification by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) as well as supporting reforestation efforts that rebuild natural habitats and ecosystems through Tree Canada.
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is a global, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. FSC® defines standards based on agreed principles for responsible forest stewardship that are supported by environmental, social, and economic stakeholders. To learn more, visit www.fsc.org
Most of our products are available as FSC® certified on request. By choosing these products, you are supporting responsible management of the world’s forests.
Fortis Trading is certified under FSC® C152388 and Chain-of Custody TT-COC-007202 which enables the tracing of our products through the supply chain and provides our customers with the assurance that the products we sell originate from responsible sources.
Fortis Trading is proud to be engaged in the renewable business of paper packaging. We are committed to sustainability through responsible practices that help protect the environment. As a part of this commitment, we have partnered with Tree Canada, a registered charity that takes steps to address climate change and preserve Canada’s green space. Every year Tree Canada carries out mass plantings on public or First Nations lands, targeting areas where there is a need for reforestation or afforestation due to natural disaster or human-caused deforestation. Since 1992, Tree Canada has planted more than 80 million trees and sequestered millions of tons of carbon in the process.
As a company dedicated to sustainability, Fortis Trading allocates funds to support Tree Canada’s planting initiatives to help offset emissions resulting from business travel. We are committed to affecting positive environmental change, one tree at a time. For more information regarding Tree Canada, please visit www.treecanada.ca
