About the Forest Stewardship Council
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, independent, not-for-profit, membership-based organization. It provides standards for responsible forest management, an extensive chain of custody system, an accreditation system for certification bodies and a distinctive trademark for buyers of forest products. Founded in 1993, in the wake of the Rio Earth Summit, the mission of FSC is to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world's forests. Its governance structure ensures the organization is independent of any one interest group by requiring an equal balance between economic, social and environmental chambers.
