About FSC

FSC works to take care of the world’s forests for future generations – making sure we all have Forests for All Forever. 

We are a global not-for-profit organization that sets the standards for what is a responsibly managed forest, both environmentally and socially. We also define supply chain best practice, from forest to factory to shop floor.

Together, we are ensuring our forests remain thriving environments for generations to come, by helping consumers and businesses make ethical and responsible choices at their local supermarket, bookstore, furniture retailer, and beyond.

How are we governed?

FSC governance structure is built upon the democratic principles of participation and equity. A three-chamber governance structure underpins all decision making, and therefore, our activities. Members represent one of the three chambers – social, environmental and economic – and all have an equal say. Members are represented by a Board of Directors.
