Overview Forest Stewardship Council
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international not for-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. Its main tools for achieving this are standard setting, certification and labelling of forest products.
FSC is a global forest certification system established for forests and forest products. From the perspective of the WWF this voluntary mechanism can be regarded as one of the more interesting initiatives of the last decade to promote better forest management. A number of alternative national and regional forest certification bodies also exist around the globe
FSC Principles and Criteria
FSC principles and criteria:
- Compliance with laws
- Workers’ rights and employment conditions
- Indigenous peoples’ rights
- Community relations
- Benefits from the forest
- Environmental values and impacts
- Management planning
- Monitoring and assessment
- High conservation values
- Implementation of management activities
Benefits of FSC
This incentive brings direct benefits to the forest, such as protecting biodiversity, indigenous peoples’ rights, worker’s rights, and areas of significant environmental or cultural importance.
FSC provides a connection between the forest and the end user, ensuring that products with the FSC label uphold principles and criteria which bring the highest social and environmental benefits.
FSC certification can positively impact workers and communities, shift governance processes globally and change economic and environmental conditions in the forest. This impact improves conditions such conflict over land tenure and use, worker’s health and safety, biodiversity conservation, protection of endangered species and participatory forest policy.
WHO NEEDS FSC CERTIFICATION?
The BRC Food Safety Standard can be used by any food processing operation where open food is handled, processed or packed. This could be from primary products such as fresh produce pack houses and slaughterhouses through to processed foods, canneries and ready to eat products.
