The FSC label credibly links responsible production and consumption, allowing consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that are beneficial to people and the environment. The Chain of Custody (COC) verifies that FSC material has been identified and separated from non-certified and non-controlled material across the entire supply chain.

This Chain-of-Custody Certification further means that only eligible materials as per FSC standards are being responsibly sourced by the manufacturer, wherein no illegally harvested wood is being processed to carry out the production. This adornment certifies that the company has responsibly complied with all the regulations and requirements of the FSC for sustainable and planet-friendly growth.

Well-deserving of the recognition, Yash Pakka generates its own electricity with an 8.5 MW plant that runs on 100 percent biomass-based energy. It also sources its raw material and fuel locally and recovers 95 percent of the cooking chemicals used in manufacturing. The company’s core USP lies in utilisation of local agri-residues in creating raw materials. Its strength is rooted in R&D and innovation, and it is creating path-breaking products and processes for fiber, pulp, paper, biopolymers, moulded products, waste lines, and biomimicry.
