The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification brings direct benefits to the forest, such as protecting biodiversity and areas of significant environmental importance. FSC® provides a connection between the forest and the end user, ensuring that products with the FSC® label uphold principles and criteria which bring the highest environmental benefits. By working to promote environmental forest management, FSC® helps local communities and society at large to enjoy long-term benefits of managing forests responsibly.
As the world's most respected forest certification scheme, FSC® is a global system with certificates issued in all forest types around the world. When forest operations meet FSC® requirements, the materials and products carry the FSC® label and provide businesses and consumers with a powerful tool to influence how forests worldwide are managed. Only FSC® certificate holders have permission to utilize the FSC® logo on printed pieces that meet FSC® standards.
