Know what does the FSC® ensures to save the forest?
Forests are inspected and certified against strict standards based on FSC®’s 10 Principles of Forest Stewardship. These inspections are undertaken by independent organisations, such as the Soil Association, that are accredited by the FSC®. In order to be given FSC® certification a forest must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner. This is what makes the FSC® system unique and ensures that a forest is well-managed from the protection of indigenous people’s rights to the methods of felling trees. Forests that meet these strict standards are given FSC® certification and the timber allowed to carry the FSC® label.
