What does FSC®-certification of wood actually mean?
FSC® is an international, not-for-profit certification scheme for timber and paper. The FSC logo can be seen on timber and paper products, so that you know you can purchase these products with a clear conscience.
In an FSC forest, trees are felled at a rate no faster than the forest can rejuvenate itself. Furthermore, FSC provides assurance that animals and vegetation are protected and that the people who work in the forest are trained and work in safe conditions and at for fair pay.
