Who We Are

Global Forest Certification

FSC is an international certification and labeling system dedicated to promoting responsible forest management of the world’s forests.

This means that forests are evaluated to meet FSC’s strict environmental and social standards. Fibre from certified forests is then tracked all the way to the consumer through the FSC Chain of Custody system. FSC-certified wood, paper and other forest products are then sold with the FSC label by certified companies in the marketplace.

FSC enables businesses and consumers to make informed choices about the forest products they buy, and create positive change to keep our forests healthy for generations to come.
