The Forest Stewardship Council is an independent, nonprofit organization that promotes the responsible management of the world's working forests through the development of forest management standards, a voluntary certification system, and trademarks that provide recognition and value to products bearing the FSC® label. FSC® standards have been applied on more than 170 million acres of actively managed forests in more than 60 countries as of Spring 2006, and growing steadily. Since its inception in 1993, it has emerged as a globally influential system for transforming forestry around the world by reaching areas where other conservation strategies or government policies have fallen short. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organization promoting responsible stewardship of the
world’s forests. The FSC ensures that forest-harvesting activities are in compliance with international standards. FSC certification ensures that the paper we print on contains fibers from well-managed and responsibly-harvested forests
