Innovation for Sustainability

FSC aims to continuously innovate and improve. We're continuously leveraging the power of new technologies to empower forest stakeholders and growing markets to achieve sustainable forest management.


The best way to move forward and improve our system is through collaboration. If you have identified the need for a new normative document, the revision of an old one, have spotted an activity out of the ordinary, or simply want to participate thought the revision and/or investigation process, please reach out to us.

FSC is the world’s most trusted sustainable forest management solution. We take our integrity seriously. Since no system is perfect, we take action when a problem is detected or reported.
