Forest Certification

FSCFSC Certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that 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.

Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international certification and labeling system dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests. Under the FSC certification system forests are evaluated to meet FSC's strict environmental and social standards. Forest products harvested from certified forests are tracked all the way to the consumer through the FSC Chain of Custody system. FSC certified forest products can be recognised in the marketplace by the FSC logo.
