Sustainable Printing

Union College is committed to sustainability and the future of our environment. For this reason, all printed pieces issued by the College must be Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified and should include the appropriate FSC logo for the materials used. There are three different FSC logos possible, based upon the content and origin of the sustainable materials: “FSC- Mixed Sources,” “FSC- Recycled” and “FSC- 100%.” Although the FSC logo specifications are extremely stringent, it is advisable to use the logo at the smallest size possible so as not to interfere with the design integrity and objectives of the finished piece.

This logo is displayed on products containing wood harvested from sustainable managed forests. Each member of the FSC has its own certification number, so this number will vary from printer to printer.
