Sourcing sustainable Natural Rubber
Rubber is used in many items of our daily lives: shoes, tyres, footballs, condoms and even medical products, such as catheters and gloves. When it is not managed responsibly, it can have grave negative impacts on the environment, communities and worker’s livelihoods.
As a result, FSC has developed a position statement for all companies that wish to source sustainable natural rubber, thereby contributing to a better social and environmental management of natural rubber plantations worldwide, and encourage more companies to make the same commitment.
FSC is actively working for a better future of natural rubber as a renewable material, and it is also a founding member of the Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber.
