Take a stand with FSC

Recognized by 56%1 of consumers across the globe, the FSC label sends a powerful message. It says you’re partnering with the organization that sets the standard for forest stewardship. 

I saw firsthand that FSC standards had the best overall outcomes from a forest health and biodiversity standpoint. They also required a great deal of engagement with local communities and focused on creating social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders.
