Headquartered in Norcross, Ga., Unisource—a leading distributor of paper, packaging and facility supplies—has earned nationwide chain-of-custody certification.

“Our chain-of-custody certification is a prestigious seal of approval, and it provides assurances to our customers that we are following best practices and fulfilling our responsibilities in forest management,” said Ed Farley, vice president, marketing; paper. “The market demand for chain-of-custody is continuing to increase, particularly in the paper industry, and our certification strengthens our commitment to environmental stewardship.”
