FSC

FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

Established in 1993 as a response to concerns over global deforestation, FSC is a pioneer forum where the global consensus on responsible forest management convenes and through democratic process effects solutions to the pressures facing the world’s forests and forest-dependent communities.

Within this forum, voices from the Global North and South, from organizations big and small, assemble to define environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable forest management and identify the tools and resources that will effect positive, lasting change.

As a multi-stakeholder organization, FSC applies the directive of its membership to develop forest management and chain of custody standards, deliver trademark assurance and provide accreditation services to a global network of committed businesses, organizations and communities.

FSC certification provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.

FSC is nationally represented in more than 50 countries around the world.

Om kenbaar te maken dat hout aantoonbaar duurzaam geproduceerd is zijn er diverse keurmerken voor duurzaam bosbeheer. Wereldwijd zijn er twee leidende keurmerken voor duurzaam bosbeheer: FSC en PEFC. Beide keurmerken staan garant voor duurzaam bosbeheer. Dit wordt onderschreven door de Europese Commissie. De Nederlandse Overheid buigt zich eveneens voor haar duurzame inkoop over de keurmerken voor duurzaam bosbeheer. Aan de hand van inkoopcriteria voor hout/houtproducten (TPAS) toetst een speciale commissie (TPAC) bestaande keurmerken. Tot nu toe zijn FSC-Internationaal en PEFC-Zweden, Finland, België, Oostenrijk en Duitsland goedgekeurd.
