What It Means When You See the FSC labels on a Product
Each label provides information about the origin of the materials used to make the finished and labeled product. FSC labels can be found on millions of products around the world – from toilet rolls to your favourite book, to that milk carton in your fridge, and other food products. What does the label mean? Simply put: by choosing products with FSC labels, you are helping to take care of the world’s forests.
Through these tumultuous times, FSC and our certificate holders are working hard to maintain the strength and resilience of our system. We will keep you updated with all the latest developments. Read the latest updates.
