Your sustainability mission starts with FSC-certified pulp and fibre.

Choose products made from sustainably sourced fibre

Forest fibre is naturally absorbent, durable, breathable, and biodegradable material from which many products are made, and it can be a sustainable choice when it comes from responsibly managed forests. Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification verifies that the fibre you create, source, or sell is sourced responsibly, making it a sustainable option for hygiene products, textiles, paper and packaging, and more. / thanasus

Pulp makes more than paper

Most people don’t realize how many everyday items are a product of the forest. Wood pulp is a renewable raw material made from trees that’s used to create books, fabrics, packaging, and much more. The pulp-making process involves pressure-cooking woodchips to separate the wood into cellulose fibres that are then washed, bleached, and used to produce a range of products.

Help protect the health of people and forests

Giving consumers the sustainable choices they want in personal hygiene products benefits us all. Sourcing FSC-certified materials, such as fluff pulp for tissue paper and a variety of hair, skin, and oral care products, has less of an impact on the environment and demonstrates your commitment to forests. 

Paper and packaging

If you’re in the paper or packaging industry, FSC can support your responsible-sourcing goals so that you can make sustainable products that your customers want.

Weave sustainability into your textile production

More textile companies are turning to man-made cellulosic fibres (MMCFs), but many of those fibres are from uncertified forests.1 This reliance on materials that aren’t FSC certified fuels deforestation and worsens the climate crisis. See how you can create fabrics and other materials that are beautiful and responsibly sourced.

If you manufacture products that use forest-based materials, you can obtain a chain of custody certification. 
Chain of custody certification shows your customers and supply chain that you’re committed to sustainable sourcing. It verifies that you’ve put processes in place to produce and trade FSC-certified products. 
When you receive chain of custody certification, you will also be able to use the FSC trademarks, letting customers know that your product is a responsible, sustainable choice.
