‘FSC’ stands for Forest Stewardship Council, an organisation that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide.
The Forest Stewardship Council sets standards for forest products, independently certifies that these standards have been met, and bestows labels upon the products that qualify.
Forest Management and Chain of Custody
FSC runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody.
The FSC system allows businesses and consumers to identify, purchase and use wood, paper and other forest products made with materials from well-managed forests and/or recycled sources.
