What is FSC?

Protecting forests by using FSC™-certified

The 2 Types of FSC™ Certification

Wood products are an essential part of our lives. However, some wood products come from illegally felled trees or from poorly managed and overharvested forest plantations. In addition to exacerbating global warming, the use of such wood products can lead to the destruction of endangered species’ habitats and the exploitation of indigenous communities, while also being associated with poaching. The system of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC™) certification was devised specifically to address these issues. It provides consumers with wood products clearly identifiable as coming from well-managed forests and from recycled materials, at the same time as it delivers economic benefits to responsible producers.
