Protect Forests for Future Generations

People depend on forests to live. They filter the water we drink and the air we breathe. Worldwide, 1.6 billion people rely on forests for their livelihoods, including food, clothing, or shelter. Forests are home to nearly half of the world's species, including some of the most endangered birds and mammals.

FSC works with forest woodland owners to become certified in the FSC forest management standard.  We support market demand for this wood by certifying manufacturers and distributors to sell FSC certified products.

With broad support from the environmental and sustainable design communities, the Forest Stewardship Council is widely considered the most rigorous and credible forest certification system. The Forest Stewardship Council mission is to promote environmentally sound, socially beneficial and economically prosperous management of the world's forests.

Some of the places you shop every day, including Target, Whole Foods, Office Depot, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Williams-Sonoma, and many more, help meet that demand by carrying FSC certified products.  FSC-certified products are also available from major brands including Charmin, Hammermill, HP, Kimberly-Clark/ Kleenex, McDonald's, Patagonia, Pottery Barn, West Elm, Williams-Sonoma, and more.

FSC is also supported by the world’s leading conservation organizations. Our members include Greenpeace, National Wildlife Federation, Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club, The Nature Conservancy and World Wildlife Fund.

When you purchase FSC certified products, you protect forests for future generations. It’s #OneSimpleAction with one profound impact. View our video and learn more:

How will your donation to the Forest Stewardship Council make a difference?
  • In the US nearly 50% of raw wood materials come from family-owned forestland but only 1% of this land is FSC certified.  Your gift will help us expand our reach to family forestland owners and work with them to become FSC certified.
  • Nearly everyone in the word recognizes the swoosh, the apple, and the golden M, but brand recognition of FSC hovers around 6%.  Your gift will help us implement marketing strategies that will make the FSC brand a powerful tool in identifying responsible forest management for manufacturers and consumers.
  • Connecting consumers to FSC certified products is critical for growing the demand for responsibly managed forests.  Over 100,000 products carry the FSC certification but we need to develop tools to make it easier for consumers to locate them.  Your gift will help us develop consumer-facing tools that make it easy for you to protect forests with your purchasing power.
We appreciate your support.   Thank you for your donation!

When you choose FSC-certfied products, you help protect the health of forests for all, forever. #OneSimpleAction with one profound impact:
