Promoting healthy forests is crucial. How can we make a lasting impact?

Held annually, FSC Forest Week is a worldwide campaign that calls upon all forest stewards to help drive consumer awareness about the importance of sustainable forestry. The aim is to inspire these customers to act by choosing FSC-certified products.

This Forest Week, Trust the Tree and Choose FSC

From 23 to 29 September, we are highlighting the importance of healthy forests.

Thriving forests are key to our fight against the climate and biodiversity crises. To achieve our vision of healthy and resilient forests that sustain life on Earth, it is critical to raise awareness and inspire responsible actions that positively impact our environment.

This year’s theme shows the social and environmental benefits of FSC certification, encouraging us to help tackle climate change, biodiversity loss, and deforestation.

With 1.6 billion people reliant on them for their livelihoods, and approximately 80 per cent of the world’s terrestrial animal species calling them home, it is our shared responsibility to protect these precious ecosystems. Choosing FSC-certified products helps safeguard biodiversity and protect endangered species. Together, let’s make a lasting impact.
