The results of the 2018 FSC Global Market Survey show that the level of satisfaction of both certificate holders and promotional license holders is high. Moreover, the sourcing and sales of FSC-certified products have continued to grow over the years and look promising for the coming years.

Overall, most certificate holders have stated that they obtain business benefits from being FSC certified – such as meeting the demands of current customers – while FSC promotional license holders perceive their license as a way to communicate their sustainability policy.

This information on the impacts of growth in the global FSC market is important for our organization and stakeholders. The insights into market developments and future trends also show where FSC certification makes a difference for certified businesses and forests and where we can improve our efforts.
