FSC provides organizations and consumers worldwide with the confirmation that the forest products they buy and sell come from responsibly-managed resources.
FSC chain of custody (CoC) certification involves more than 50,000 companies worldwide buying, selling and trading FSC-certified material. Building on this world-renowned certification, we offer industry-leading monitoring tools that help ensure companies of all sizes keep certified and non-certified materials separated throughout the supply chain.
As CoC certification evolves, we are introducing a more flexible system that incorporates new advances in technology, and the lessons we have learned from our 25 years of experience. For us, the accuracy and transparency of the FSC supply chain is crucial. That is why we run initiatives around the world aimed at addressing inaccurate claims in the FSC system.
