A draft controlled wood strategy is open for stakeholder feedback 16 July to 17 September 2018.

FSC has been engaging with its stakeholders for more than two years to agree on a shared vision for the future of ‘FSC Mix’ products and the controlled wood used to produce them. FSC stakeholders have explored several possibilities, but after a three-day workshop in June 2018 based on a format known as ‘Future Search,’ there is a clear vision and objectives and actions. All the elements of the draft strategy are open for public consultation. An advisory group to the controlled wood strategy will review the feedback received, and incorporate the results into the final controlled wood strategy document to be presented to the FSC International Board of Directors at the end of 2018.

Participate in the consultation now.
