Deforestation-Free Forest Products from 187 million hectares globally
FSC is a proven tool for sourcing forest materials that have minimum negative impacts on forests
Companies that use agricultural or forest commodities are increasingly committing to ‘deforestation-free’ policies. Forest certification is a proven tool that can help. Equally important is that forest certification goes beyond deforestation and maintains the quality of forests, preventing forest degradation. Certification works for large and small companies, and is controlled by independent, specialized, third-party bodies. Almost 17 per cent of the industrial roundwood produced globally comes from FSC-certified forests – a robust start for promoting deforestation-free products.
