Demonstrating the responsible origin of your wood and paper products
The demand for wood, paper and other forest products sourced from well-managed forests continues to grow. Consumers and business partners want assurance that your products come from responsibly managed sources that limit their damage to the forest environment and forest-dependent indigenous communities. Your business must also prove that your goods come exclusively from legal sources as required by the EU Timber Regulation, the Lacey Act in the U.S., or similar legislative requirements.
Forest certification systems, such as the “Forest Stewardship Council®” (FSC®) are established to assure consumers that certified wood or paper products actually come from sustainably managed forests.
About FSC® Chain of Custody (CoC) Certification
The Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) is a nonprofit organisation that set standards for forestry practices with the aim of promoting environmentally responsible and socially beneficial forestry. Wood products such as furniture can be labelled as FSC certified if they meet the high standards set by the organisation.
Business Benefits of FSC® CoC Certification
- Proof of mark – by featuring the prestigious FSC trademark on your products and packaging.

- Enhance your brand image – as a company in the forest product sector that is environmentally aware.
