Analysis: the impact of FSC certification on printing enterprises

ppzhan news: sig Kangmei bag launched China's first beverage carton packaging with FSC certification mark, Tetra Pak China will launch FSC certification paper packaging, Mengniu will use FSC forest certification new packaging materials, Jielong art printing company will start FSC certification, and Hunan Tianwen Xinhua printing company will start FSC certification in the first half of this year. With the impact of the Shanghai WorldExpo on green, environmental protection With the promotion of low carbon and other concepts, the printing and packaging industry began a new round of FSC certification, setting off a green trend of forest packaging

consulting company: This is the environmental protection certification embodied in paper.

let's first understand the FSC certification. Public information shows that the FSC, theforeststewardshipcouncil, is a non-profit non-governmental organization. It provides certification for pulp mills, paper mills, printing mills, flooring factories, furniture factories, etc. that can comply with strict forest management standards, proving that the wood and paper used in their products are from sustainable, legal and allowable forest resources

from the perspective of green printing, what FSC certification can achieve is only the environmental protection of the paper in the printing materials. In order to realize green printing in an all-round way, printing and packaging enterprises must carry out cleaner production, and promote it from the use of equipment, the selection of process, the selection of materials, the discharge of three wastes and other aspects. Beijing Dacheng Xinhua Certification Consulting Co., Ltd. is committed to certification consulting in the publishing and printing industries. Qian Lei, general manager of the company, made such qualitative comments on FSC certification

what changes will FSC certification bring to the enterprise's production management process? Shanghai qiangsi Enterprise Management Consulting Co., Ltd. has done FSC certification consulting for more than a dozen printing and packaging enterprises. Lijianbiao, general manager of the company, said that there are two types of FSC certification, namely forest management certification and production and marketing chain of Supervision certification. Printing and packaging enterprises should do the latter. He said: the big change after the printing enterprises' production and marketing chain of Supervision certification is that the enterprises should supervise the whole process of FSC products in the whole supply chain of procurement, warehousing, production, processing, packaging and sales. The purpose is to effectively distinguish FSC products from non FSC products, so as to assure buyers and consumers that the certified goods they purchase are products from well managed forests

fsc certification is not once and for all. Lijianbiao said that after obtaining the certification, the printing and packaging enterprises can mark the FSC logo on the products printed with FSC certified materials at the same speed. However, enterprises should follow the principle of good faith. If an enterprise pastes the FSC certification mark on products printed on non FSC certified paper, once it is found by the certification authority, it will be suspended from using the FSC certification mark

in addition, FSC certification does not mean that the enterprise produces all FSC certified products. Qian Lei explained that certification is just a kind of capability proof, proving that an enterprise can produce FSC certified products and can realize the traceability of the whole process of procurement and production. Whether to produce FSC certified products depends on the requirements of customers

statistical data: certified enterprises are concentrated in the Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta

what is the current status of FSC certification in China's printing and packaging industry? Under the guidance of insiders, the station that logged in to FSC made a query. After inputting keywords such as China and print in relevant sections, the page shows that since 2007, 151 printing enterprises in China have passed FSC certification. Analyzing the data of these certified enterprises, we find the following characteristics

first, the certified enterprises are concentrated in the Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta. Among all certified enterprises, enterprises located in Guangdong Province, an important printing and export base in China, account for half of the country. Among them, there are about 20 in Dongguan, Shenzhen and Guangzhou respectively. There are more than a dozen Hong Kong companies that list the printing industry as one of the four major industries. Among the certified enterprises in the Yangtze River Delta, there are nearly 20 in Shanghai, more than 10 in Zhejiang and nearly 10 in Jiangsu. In addition, there are about 10 in Fujian, less than 5 in Beijing, and one or two in Shandong and Jiangxi. Secondly, large printing enterprises with Hong Kong and foreign capital backgrounds passed the certification earlier

according to the data, as early as 2007, China business union printing (Guangdong) Co., Ltd., Heshan ARTUS Printing Co., Ltd., Hongxing printing (China) Printing Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Yachang Color Printing Co., Ltd., Xingguang printing (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. and Lifeng Accor printing brush Shenzhen Co., Ltd. passed the certification. Some groups have passed the certification in many companies all over the country, such as Donnelly's companies in Beijing, Shanghai and Dongguan, and Zhonghua business's companies in Guangdong and security printing companies in Hong Kong

why are certified enterprises concentrated in these regions and enterprises? Qian Lei told the China publishing news that the certification of printing enterprises used to be the same, ISO9000, ISO14000 and ISO18000. Now, Europe and the United States attach great importance to environmental issues. If printing enterprises want to receive external orders, they must carry out FSC certification. The Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta, as the main regions to undertake overseas orders, local enterprises naturally attach great importance to FSC certification

printing enterprises: enterprises that have passed the certification at different times in order to understand the FSC certification and related business of printing and packaging enterprises. When it comes to the original intention of FSC certification, enterprises often mention two reasons, one is to protect the environment, and the other is to undertake external orders

China business United Printing (Guangdong) Co., Ltd. passed the FSC certification as early as 2007. Luohaiping, director of the company's technology department, said that the company's certification is in response to the needs of environmental protection and market expansion. He said: before the certification, the company's orders in this area were very large. Here is a brief introduction to the three aspects of manufacturing specifications, changing relevant terms, and product introduction. There is little relevant information about the microcomputer control changing experimental machine, but after the certification, it has grown rapidly. In the year of certification, the company had orders for FSC certified products worth hundreds of thousands of yuan, which soared to tens of millions of yuan last year. However, he also said that the proportion of FSC certification business in the whole business is still very small. The company's external business accounts for 70% ~ 80% of the total business, of which FSC certification business accounts for only 5% of the external business. At present, the FSC certified products of the company mainly include apple, Sony and other electronic product manuals, as well as picture books, hardcover books and some commercial prints. The company has set up a special area to store FSC paper and finished products, printed FSC products on a special machine, and recorded the whole production process of FSC products

Guangdong Zhongshan Zhongrong paper printing products Co., Ltd. just passed the FSC certification in May this year. Leizhile, manager of the company's overseas development department, said that the company hopes to meet the customer's requirements in terms of environmental protection, because many European customers require that the materials be sourced from renewable forest wood when placing orders. Therefore, when the company carries out FSC certification, it hopes to obtain more overseas orders and prove its contribution to environmental protection. He also confessed that at present, foreign customers are basically required to use FSC certified paper, and domestic customers do not have such requirements

industry appeal: Mr. Guo, who expects domestic customers to use certified products, expressed such confusion. Although the company passed the FSC certification in August 2008, the FSC business volume of the company is relatively small, so the minimum order quantity required by the paper supplier is usually not met when purchasing FSC certified paper. Gradually reform the production equipment to be fully automated. If the friction surface is covered with lubricant, the company will purchase paper according to this minimum quantity, which will inevitably lead to the backlog of paper and the occupation of funds

according to the analysis of manager Guo, the main reason for this problem is that there are too few printing and packaging enterprises that have passed the FSC certification, and the business volume required to print FSC products is also very small. Therefore, when purchasing paper that has passed the FSC certification, it will not reach a certain scale, and if it does not reach a certain volume, the paper factory will not specially produce it. She said: Suzhou Shida Printing Co., Ltd. is an enterprise with Japanese background. It mainly prints electronic product manuals for more than 130 Japanese brand enterprises such as Sony, Canon, Hitachi, Toshiba, etc. FSC business is also concentrated in these foreign customers, and there is basically no requirement for domestic customers to print related business

lijianbiao, general manager of Shanghai qiangsi Enterprise Management Consulting Co., Ltd., also said that although he has done FSC certification for many enterprises, he rarely sees relevant products in his life. He said: I have only seen two enterprises using FSC products. One is that all paper products of HSBC have FSC logo. The other is that I have seen it in a five hotel in Lujiazui, Shanghai. It is usually foreigners who promote the use of FSC certified products, but few domestic enterprises use them. In his opinion, only when all enterprises are concerned about society and want to protect the environment, can FSC certification be truly promoted and printing and packaging enterprises have more relevant businesses
