Choose good wood through the Forest Stewardship Council

What is the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)?

We believe that the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is the most credible global forest certification system that ensures environmentally and socially-responsible forest management.

That’s why we recommend FSC to consumers, businesses, policymakers and forest managers.

How does the FSC work?

The FSC is an independent, not for profit, non-government organisation that provides standard setting, trademark assurance and accreditation services for companies and organisations commited to responsible forestry.

Responsible forest managers can demonstrate their high standards by securing internationally-recognised FSC certification.

How does WWF-Australia support FSC?

Through the Love Your Forests campaign, WWF is working with leading businesses to actively promote the FSC eco-label and help consumers make the right choice when it comes to reducing their forest footprint.

Through the Global Forest and Trade Network (GFTN), WWF is working with leading companies to increase the number of FSC-certified timber and paper products on the market.

We also encourage consumers to request that their furniture and other timber products be sourced from logging operations that are not causing environmental and social harm.
