What is FSC®?

FSC® stands for the Forest Stewardship Council®, a certification system co-founded by WWF (World Wildlife Fund). FSC® is a global forest certification system with two key components:

By choosing materials such as wood with FSC® chain of custody means that the wood species or branded wood product comes from a forest that is responsibly managed. Trees in the certified forests are grown and harvested according to a strict set of guidelines that benefit the environment.

These guidelines include:

– Limiting the number of trees cut down

– Restricting highly hazardous pesticides

– Protecting indigenous people as well as wildlife habitats


The FSC® certification system allows consumers to identify, purchase and use wood, paper and other forest products produced from well-managed forests and/or recycled materials and a logo and certificate is provided for suppliers to use in their marketing work.
