What is FSC® and How Does It Ensure Sustainability?
The FSC® is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established in 1993 as a response to global deforestation. The Forest Stewardship Council® has changed the dialogue about and the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. FSC® sets forth principles, criteria, and standards that span economic, social, and environmental concerns. The FSC® standards represent the world’s strongest system for guiding forest management toward sustainable outcomes.
FSC®’s chain of custody system (CoC) tracks FSC® certified material through the production process – from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing
