Donate now to support our mission of forests for all, forever.

What is FSC?

As the world’s most trusted sustainable forestry standard, FSC is a positive force for change that supports biodiversity, climate resilience, workers’ and Indigenous Peoples’ rights, and community livelihoods. But forests continue to come under pressure from deforestation, forest degradation, illegal logging, and the changing climate.
