The benefits of FSC for retail sector

FSC is the sustainable forest management solution trusted by businesses that want the competitive advantage that assured compliance brings. It proves businesses are helping to ensure forests thrive today and for future generations.


icon zero deforestation


Although trees are harvested, there is no net loss of forest over time. 

icon environmental protection


Biodiversity is maintained, and high conservation value areas - including old growth forest - are protected.

icon indigenous rights


Forest inhabitants are consulted and engaged, and cultural rights are maintained

icon workers


Training, safety and decent wages for all workers are assured.


Therefore, when a forest becomes FSC certified, it’s an assurance that all these factors have been considered. That assurance extends to the materials that come from the forest, like FSC- certified wood, paper, cardboard, etc.

    Set yourself apart from competition

    To improve awareness of responsible forest products and materials, we have made promoting FSC- certified products and services as simple as possible, by making our logo available for promotional materials and marketing campaigns. This gives retailers, brand owners, and other organizations with no FSC certification an opportunity to promote FSC-labelled products.

    By signing an FSC promotional license agreement and joining our FSC Trademark Service Programme, you can create your own unique and powerful point-of-sale materials, signalling your commitment to responsible forest management to your customers.

    FSC’s Trademark Service Programme also offers participants advice on the best ways to use and promote FSC-branded products. This can enhance the way their customers see them and gives them a role in improving market access for responsible forest products.
