FSC stands for the traceability and the considerate treatment of the available raw material wood originating from a well managed forest with a controlled, certified and resource-friendly cultivation. This aim is visible to the end consumer by the imprint of the FSC label on the packaging.
Products labeled FSC have to go through the product chain, right from the forest unto the end consumer, passing through trade and processing. Every producer is verifiably controlled through the “chain of custody”, that guarantees that the supply chain of the producing and/or processing companies is traceable without any interruption from the tree to the finished cardboard product.
FSC promotes market-oriented sustainably efficient incentives through a gentle forestry management of the forests. This corresponds to the increasing interest of the end consumers in the raw material wood: wood harvested under the control of FSC does not contribute to the gradual global destruction.
