FSC®

Forest Stewardship Council  

 

 

The  FSC®, in the world, identifies products containing wood from forests managed in a correct and responsible manner according to rigorous environmental, social and economic standards.
FSC® is an international, independent and non-profit NGO, which includes among its members environmental and social groups, indigenous communities, forest owners, industries that process and trade wood, scientists and technicians who work together to improve the management of forests around the world. To succeed in its mission, FSC® has adopted a voluntary and third party (independent) certification system, specific for the forest sector and products derived from forests, operating internationally. At the base there are 10 Principles and 56 Criteria (P&C) of good forest management, rules for the traceability of products and rules for the use of the international registered trademark. By certification of traceability we mean the identification of all the steps that lead from the forest of origin, where the trunk lies, to the finished product (also called chain of custody, from the English chain of custody-CoC). in wood and paper that display the FSC® logo are certified as coming from forests that respect P&C and companies in possession of a valid CoC certificate can affix the FSC® mark on their products.
