Does your company make or sell products containing forest materials like wood, paper, fibre, or natural rubber? Take a stand for the health of our forests by becoming FSC certified.
Even companies that don’t make or sell forest-based products can make a difference. Encourage your company to support sustainable forestry by sourcing FSC-certified products. Making the switch to FSC-certified products like printer paper and other office supplies isn’t just good for the environment, it’s good for business too.
If your company invests in corporate social responsibility initiatives, consider sponsoring a forest project. Through FSC’s ecosystem services claims, you can sponsor a project that protects or restores biodiversity, carbon storage, and more—while receiving verified evidence that your sponsorship made a measurable difference.
