The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is governed by a global network of over 1,000 individuals and member organizations representing environmental, social, and economic perspectives.  They believe responsible forest management balances the interests of the environment, communities, and economy to achieve outcomes that benefit all.  

Certification is just one way they put the sustainable forestry standards at their core to work. In partnership with a diverse ecosystem of stakeholders, they are developing new solutions focused on: 

  • Responsible Sourcing: Helping businesses work with forests responsibly 
  • Conservation: Maintaining and enhancing forest value 
  • Restoration: Accelerating forest recovery
