Pinnacle Label Receives FSC and CFPA Certification
Headquartered in Buffalo, N.Y., Pinnacle Label has received certifications from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), as well as the Chlorine Free Products Association (CFPA). “We are very proud to say that we are the first label manufacturer to receive both certifications,” said Ches Cochran, president.
Pinnacle Label received chain-of-custody certification from the FSC in May of 2007, and certification from the CFPA a few months later in October. The certifications reinforce the company’s commitment to environmentally conscious manufacturing, and the use of papers from sources practicing sustainable forestry. “It is important we begin to initiate a green campaign in our industry in order to uphold the environmental obligations of a business in this new era of environmental consciousness,” Cochran explained.
Pinnacle Label researched and developed a recyclable cut sheet, pressure sensitive label in response to President Clinton’s Executive Order 13148 section 702 “Greening the Government Through Leadership in Environmental Management, ” which requires the federal government to purchase paper products using environmentally benign adhesives when technically practical and cost effective.
Pinnacle Label offers an FSC/CFPA certified 8½x11˝ stock line named Recyclabels. It is available in several stock layouts meeting virtually any imaging needs—from laser and ink jet printers to copiers and digital and offset printing. The company’s Recyclabels are compatible with Avery LabelPro, and easily cross-reference with the vast majority of label software programs used today.
