“During the last few years, the uptake of FSC-certified materials and products in sports events has increased. As the awareness of sustainability and social responsibility increase, this is also reflected in the sectors in which paper, wood and other forest products are used. For example at the London Olympics, more than two thirds of the wood used to build the Olympic Park was FSC certified,” commented Marcelle Peuckert, Business Development Director at FSC International. “We welcome this trend and encourage sports governing bodies to require materials that are of responsible origin. It is great to see that FSC-certified products can play a role in securing the environmental responsibility of an event such as EURO 2016.”
