The FSC ™ certification is issued by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). When the product is marked with the FSC ™ certification mark, it means that the material of the product comes from the qualified "well-managed forest". The raw material source of the product is reliable, sustainable and regulated.
The main purpose of FSC ™ certification is to ensure that the wood and wood materials used in the product are not from unqualified forests, but from responsible forests certified by FSC ™. Like agricultural resumes, FSC ™, strictly speaking, is a source management system. Tracing its supply chain and even the original forestry through the platform; the purpose is to promote environmental construction, create benefits in society, and realize economic efficiency. By establishing international standards and forestry management guidelines, the platform hopes to achieve an environmental, sustainable and ecological forest environment.

- What does FSC stand for? What does it mean?
Forest Stewardship Council is an independent, non-profit, and non-government organization. FSC's wood products (including paper) are "forest-friendly" products.
- Why does it vital?
The more you choose to use FSC wood products, the faster you can solve this problem (you use your purchasing power to encourage more wood product manufacturers to use FSC forest raw materials). For example, IKEA, B&Q, Home Depot, all use FSC wood. Another example is HSBC, Xerox and other users who choose to use FSC paper products.
- Why choose FSC paper?
Recycled paper is most suitable for use in cartons and newsprint. Other high-end products are difficult to manufacture, which may cause secondary pollution. If the source of recycled paper comes from the deforestation of tropical rainforests, it can only slow down the decline of forests, but FSC can ensure the sustainable management of forests. If the world’s paper is changed to recycled paper, recycled pulp willdisappear in a short time, because paper can only be recycled 5 to 6 times. So there must always be new pulp added.
