FSC - Forest Stewardship Council

FSC is an independent, non-profit organization that protects forests for future generations

The Forest Stewardship Council sets standards for responsible forest management. A voluntary program, FSC uses the power of the marketplace to protect forests for future generations.

Some people feel the best way to prevent deforestation is to stop using forest products. In reality, people use forest products every day. For example, the average American uses nearly six trees worth of paper each year.

So FSC harnesses market demand to ensure forests are responsibly managed. Because FSC is the gold standard in forest certification, it is the only system supported by groups such as WWF, Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Natural Resources Defence Council and National Wildlife Federation.

Today, more than 380 million acres of forest are certified under FSC's system, including more than 150 million acres in the US and Canada.
