Forest Stewardship Council certification
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international network promoting responsible management of the world's forests and a certification process for sustainably harvested wood.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international network that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests through an ecologically credible, independent, third party certification system. Certification under the FSC is accomplished by voluntary compliance with regionally specific standards and criteria.
The certification process helps ensure that a particular forestry operation is ecologically sound, socially beneficial, and economically viable. Many companies are beginning to offer FSC-certified wood, responding to a steady shift in the market place in favor of ecologically and socially sustainable forest products.
