The FSC International Board of Directors approved the controlled wood strategy on 30 April 2019. One of the core objectives of this strategy is to increase the demand for products carrying the FSC 100% label; the corresponding proposed action is to “promote the use of FSC 100% label in a way that elevates it in the marketplace without discrediting other FSC labels”.

This is an exciting challenge from a marketing and communications perspective. Therefore, we are inviting experts to join an advisory working group to share their ideas and expertise with us. The working group will comprise approximately 10 stakeholders and will be active during September and October 2020.

General requirements for candidates

Candidates should have a background in marketing, communications, labelling, branding and advertising. Knowledge and experience of FSC’s systems and procedures is also desirable (but not essential for all members of the group).

Candidates must be willing and available to attend two conference calls of 3 hours each to be scheduled on 24th September and 12th October, 2020.
