Forest Stewardship Council® is a non-profit organisation that provides a sustainable forest management solution
Forests sustain life on earth and must be protected. That’s why the FSC® – a non-profit organization that covers over 200 million hectares of certified forests – provides a sustainable forest management solution that is trusted by NGOs, consumers, and businesses alike to ensure healthy and resilient forests, for all, forever.
As the most recognized and rigorous forest certification system, FSC’s “check tree” label – found on millions of products worldwide – verifies sustainable sourcing from forest to consumer.
FSC® places people at the forefront of its work standards because responsible forestry entails more than just protecting the health and resilience of forests but also the well-being of the people who live and work in them; community and family forest managers, Indigenous Peoples living on their ancestral lands, and workers whose livelihoods rely on forest products. Its core labour requirements offer transparency on how this is achieved.
