The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

FSC provides an international certification system for products and services from responsible forestry, based on multi-stakeholder agreed standards, product labelling and independently operated certification and accreditation surveillance.

Nearly 900 organizational and individual members representing social, environmental and economic interests determine FSC’s policies and procedures. For more information about the Forest Stewardship Council please visit the FSC website.
