FSC

  • Sustaining our forests

    The FSC label on a wood or paper product is a clear indicator that the product originates from well managed forests. Products bearing the FSC label guarantee the use of forests according to the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.

    The FSC was founded in 1993 as a nonprofit organisation. As a global association for the promotion of responsible forest management, the FSC is recognised by environmental organisations, companies, social activists and representatives of the wood and timber industry. The independent organisation advocates the use of globally valid rules for the environmental and socially sound production of wood.

    Through the use of its logo, the FSC creates incentives for innovative forestry. The various FSC logos provide information on the exact composition of the product.
