Below are examples of how to describe FSC.


In text

Short description
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home. So you can keep your life full of forest products while keeping our forests full of life. For more information visit www.ca.fsc.org

Long description
FSC is a global not-for-profit organization that sets the standards for responsibly managed forests, both environmentally and socially. When timber leaves an FSC® certified forest they ensure companies along the supply chain meet our best practice standards also, so that when a product bears the FSC logo, you can be sure it’s been made from responsible sources. In this way, FSC certification helps forests remain thriving environments for generations to come, by helping you make ethical and responsible choices at your local supermarket, bookstore, furniture retailer, and beyond.
