FSC is a global not-for-profit organization that helps take care of the environment and boost the global economy by ensuring responsible management of close to 190 million hectares of the world’s forests.

To see how the work of FSC makes a positive difference in your market, and how FSC-certified organizations in 80 countries benefit from chain of custody, forest management certification, and the universally recognized FSC labels, read the FSC Market Info Pack.

Consumer demand for sustainable, ethically sourced wood and forest products is increasing. Today, sustainability is no longer an option, it is a basic requirement.

FSC certification is about taking care of the environment, but it also means economic success: a recent WWF report found many forest owners and managers make more money per cubic metre of wood once they start certifying their forest operation.
