Forest Stewardship Council®
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests. It was founded in 1993 in response to public concern about deforestation and demand for a trustworthy wood-labelling scheme. The FSC® runs a global forest certification system with two key components: forest management and chain of custody certification. This system allows consumers to identify, purchase and use timber and forest products produced from well-managed forests. The certification means that the paper printed.com uses for FSC labelled products is from responsible sources.
