What is FSC ?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a non-profit organisation that aims to promote sustainable forestry globally. Founded in 1993, as a response to worldwide concerns about deforestation, the FSC’s mission is to ensure that the world’s forests are managed in an environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically viable way.
The FSC sets certain standards for forest management, prioritising conservation, biodiversity, and community engagement and FSC certification is given to products that fulfill these lofty standards.
Why should we care about FSC certification?

1. Helps you make more sustainable choices 

In recent years, there has been a growing trend of consumer awareness regarding environmental issues and societal concern towards sustainability has never been more prevalent.

FSC certification allows consumers to make more informed decisions and rest assured that they are making greener and more sustainable choices when purchasing FSC-certified products.

2. Benefits to businesses

FSC certification is a globally-recognised label and represents a business’ commitment to responsible environmental practices. This provides businesses with a competitive advantage as it can improve their brand image as well as help their consumers feel more aligned with their business’ values, hence strengthening their relationship. 

Furthermore, with the tightening of environmental regulations placed by governing bodies in recent years, FSC certification can help businesses stay ahead of the curve by eliminating the risk of sourcing materials from unethical or illegal sources.

3. Combating deforestation

FSC certification plays a crucial role in protecting the world’s forests. Deforestation poses a massive threat to our environment. According to the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), forest loss and damage is responsible for 10% of global warming and 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Forests are also a vital source of biodiversity as are homes to hundreds of thousands of plant and animal species. 

FSC certification promotes sustainable forestry practices, such as minimizing clear-cutting and protecting endangered species habitats, to ensure that forests remain healthy and productive for generations to come.
