What is the FSC and why is it important in the wood industry?
The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international non-profit organization that promotes responsible forest management globally. Founded to ensure that wood comes from sustainably managed forests, the FSC is committed to preserving biodiversity, respecting workers’ rights, and protecting natural habitats. In the wood industry, the FSC plays a key role in ensuring that wooden products adhere to the highest environmental and social standards. Purchasing FSC-certified products actively contributes to the conservation of forest resources and supports ethical practices.
