Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC®) is a global, non-profit organization created in response to the growing problem of deforestation and whose goal is to promote the responsible management of the planet’s forest resources from an environmental, social and economic.
FSC certification is a voluntary compliance standard designed to support internationally responsible forest management, with three types of certificates: Forest Management Certificate, Chain of Custody Certificate and Controlled Wood Certificate.
Chain of Custody certification applies to producers, processors, manufacturers and distributors of FSC certified products. It allows to prove the traceability and legal provenance of the product and use the FSC trademark. This certification verifies that products sold under the FSC label have met the strict FSC standards from the forest to the point of sale.
