What FSC means
The FSC ® logo identifies products containing wood originating from forests that are managed correctly and responsibly according to strict environmental, social and economic standards. The forest of origin has been checked and assessed independently in conformity with these standards (principles and criteria of good forest management), set and approved by the Forest Stewardship Council ® A.C. with the participation and consent of the interested parties.
Certification by the FSC, Forest Stewardship Council, is the main instrument for guaranteeing the origin of wood and paper. It is an international certification testifying that the raw material used to make a wood or paper product comes from forests where strict environmental, social and economic standards are followed. The FSC, set up in 1993, includes among its members environmental and social groups, indigenous communities, consumer associations, forest owners, technicians, certification bodies and businesses involved in the primary processing, transformation and marketing of wood, all working together to improve the management of forest resources around the world.
