TRACIBILITY THROUGH THE ENTIRE CHAIN
Consumers, companies and authorities are demanding more and more guarantees that harvested wood, paper and wood products come from sustainably managed sources. The system around FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) makes it possible to differentiate wood products that come from responsible forestry that provides added value for those who use it today and in the future. The standard is based on both principles of sustainable development and continuous improvements in forestry and traceability in trade and processing of the companies using wood products from certified forests.

What is FSC® certification?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an independent non-governmental organization created in 1993 by environmental organizations, timber industry organizations, hunters, indigenous peoples and certification bodies with representatives from 25 countries. FSC® is based on two solutions. One is forestry certification for companies that manage natural or planted forests, also available for the supply chain. The second is Chain of Custody Traceability Certification, for companies using forest products (i.e., furniture manufacturers, publishers, pulp and paper industry and all types of wood products) to certify the traceability of the raw material's origin.
How to market your certification?
An FSC® certification gives you permission to use the internationally recognized brand on promotional material. This clearly shows to consumers and the supply chain that you follow high forestry standards.
Why FSC® Certification?
FSC® certification is a way of demonstrating the company's commitment to sustainable development. It gives your company an advantage over its competitors and shows that you contribute to promoting sustainable development.
