FSC® at a glance

Who we are & what we do

FSC is a global, not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. We enable businesses and consumers to make informed choices about the forest products they buy, and create positive change by engaging the power of market dynamics through certification.

FSC provides a forum where international stakeholders come together to define best practices for forest management. Our governance structure is based on participation, democracy, equity and transparency. We facilitate the development of standards, ensure monitoring of certified operations and work to protect the FSC trademark so consumers can choose products that come from well managed forests.

Our members include some of the world’s leading environmental NGOs (WWF and Greenpeace), businesses (Tetra Pak and Mondi PLC) and social organizations (the National Aboriginal Forestry Association of Canada) , as well as forest owners and managers,  processing companies and campaigners, and individuals.
