Highlighting your certified products
This is designed to help you make it easy for your customers to identify your Responsible Wood-certified products within catalogues, brochures and prices lists (digital or paper based). You need to clearly place an off-product label with the message “The products marked with the Responsible Wood trademarks can be provided as Responsible Wood certified” and then can put the Responsible Wood label next to all your Responsible Wood-certified products.
The aim of this process is to make it easier for you as a retailer to demonstrate to your customers which of your products are certified, without needing to use the specific licence number of every supplier.
Promoting your responsible sourcing
To help promote your sale of Responsible Wood-certified products to your customers, you have a range of off-product label messages to choose from:
- Promoting Sustainable Forest Management
- [Company name] offers Responsible Wood certified products
- By sourcing Responsible Wood, [we/company name] are/is supporting sustainably managed forests globally
- By sourcing Responsible Wood [wood/paper/packaging/products], [we/company name] are/is supporting sustainably managed forests globally
- The Responsible Wood logo on our products ensures that our [wood/paper/packaging/products] comes/come from sustainably managed forests, recycled and controlled sources. Every purchase of a Responsible Wood-labelled product makes a difference for forests and forest communities across the world.
You can also use these messages without the label, under the same requirements. When using them, you must either have the Responsible Wood label close to the message, or put your trademarks licence number next to the message.
Putting the Responsible Wood label on your products
If your products are produced by third parties, then your suppliers need to be Responsible Wood certified and label the finished products with their Responsible Wood trademarks licence number.
Only Responsible Wood certified companies can use the Responsible Wood trademarks directly on-product. For more information, please check the Responsible Wood label and how to get certified sections of our website or contact us at [email protected]
