FSC®– For the sake of the forest

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) is an international, nongovernmental, non-profit organization with the goal of making the ecological and social responsible management of the world’s forests visible on products with the help of a seal. Worldwide more than 135 million hectares of forest are FSC® certified, of which over 420.000 hectares are in Germany (status: March 2011).

10 principles and 56 criteria for an environmentally sound, socially acceptable and economically reasonable forestry guarantee, that the used timber is retrieved under consideration of people and nature. To preserve the diversity of animal and plant species and the whole ecosystem, trees for the production of wood and paper are taken out carefully. The means of existence, culture and inherited rights and customary rights of indigenous peoples are protected.

As the only forest certification system the FSC™ is being supported by environmental and social associations, such as WWF, Greenpeace, Rainforest Alliance, several workers unions and different indigenous organizations like the Shuswap Nation Tribal Council.

Independent certifying bodies regularly inspect the certified forests and every firm in the chain, such as SONOR.
