Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international certification and labeling system dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests. Under the FSC certification system forests are evaluated to meet FSC's strict environmental and social standards. Forest products harvested from certified forests are tracked all the way to the consumer through the FSC Chain of Custody system. FSC certified forest products can be recognized in the marketplace by the FSC logo.
