Greenpeace supports FSC Canada
The climate is changing. The fragile earth, including our forests, needs a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action. FSC Canada’s forest certification, provides actionable ways to monitor forest use, trace and label timber, wood and pulp products and offers a quantifiable way to judge the quality of forest management practices against agreed upon requirements.
FSC Canada’s standard for responsible forest management is the only one endorsed by Greenpeace Canada. The requirements in the new FSC standard cover much more than just logging practices – they include respect for Indigenous rights, create opportunities for local communities and provide our iconic wildlife the habitat they need to survive.
As we celebrate the 1st anniversary of the standard, FSC Canada and Greenpeace Canada want to encourage consumers to stand with us and stand up for forests by buying and asking for products from FSC certified forests.
It matters more now than ever.
