Consumers, companies, public authorities require more and more guarantees that harvested trees, paper and wood products come from properly managed sources. FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council) certification system enables to differentiate wood products that come from responsible forest management which delivers added value. 
This scheme is based both on sustainable development and good practices principles applied to forest management and on traceability principle applied to trading and processing companies using wood products from the certified forests.



What is FSC™ Certification?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC™) is an independent NGO (Non Governmental Organization) created in 1993 by environmental NGOs, wood trade organizations, foresters, indigenous people and certification bodies representing 25 countries. It stands as the one of the most globally recognized group promoting forestry certification standards. 
FSC™ is based on two solutions:
- a Forest Management certificate, for companies that manage forest ressources
- a Chain Of Custody certificate, for companies using forest products (i.e. furniture manufacturers, publishers, pulp industries, and all wood products…) to attest the wood origin traceability.
What are the key benefits?
- Increasing consumer confidence
- Ensuring better access to your markets through strong differentiation
- Protecting forest resources
- Improving your brand image 


How to promote my certification?

The Forest Stewardship Council™ certification gives certificate holders the use of the internationally recognized trademarks on promotional materials, visibly demonstrating to supply chain partners high forestry standards compliance. 

Why asking for a FSC™ certification?

FSC™ certification is first a forest management quality or wood products follow up recognition. This is also a way to demonstrate your company’s commitment to sustainable development, it gives your company an edge over competitors and at the end improves your company’s image. 

How much time and money are needed for this certification?  

The certification costs depend on the size, complexity and organisation of your company. Between the formal application and the certificate issuance, it may take a few months, but a Bureau Veritas Certification representative will be able to provide details relative to your unique situation.
