The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) strives to support the EU Commission in making products more sustainable and fit for a climate-neutral circular economy. For this, FSC has engaged with the EU Commission to recommend:

  1. including responsible sourcing among the EU sustainability principles (design for sustainability)
  2. employing robust voluntary sustainability standards as a proxy for compliance with the sustainability principles (co-design for sustainability)
  3. raising the bar on voluntary sustainability standards (boosting sustainability)

FSC's response to the EU public consultation can be found below. Should you have any question on the matter, please contact FSC’s EU Affairs & Engagement Manager, Matteo Mascolo, at:
