On September 25, 2020, the Forest Stewardship Council will be hosting ‘FSC Friday’ an annual event to raise awareness for FSC by encouraging consumers, companies, communities and stakeholders to share your commitment to FSC and responsible forestry - whether through forest management practices, or sourcing and buying FSC certified materials and products.

A seemingly minor Interpretation from FSC International’s Performance and Standards Unit, which clarifies what is allowable under the most recent version of the Chain of Custody standard (FSC-STD-40-004 V3-0), has the potential to significantly increase the availability of FSC inputs for high-demand fiber-based products.

For over 25 years FSC has depended on a committed group of businesses, environmentalists and community leaders, driven to create change through a voluntary, consumer-driven approach that improves forestry practices worldwide.

The climate is changing. The fragile earth, including our forests, needs a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action.

One year ago, FSC Canada launched a new National standard for responsible forest management which targets the most pressing issues threatening our forests today, including the woodland caribou crisis; the rights of Indigenous Peoples’; workers’ rights (including gender equity); conservation and landscape management.
