Glossary: Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)

FSC is an independent, non-profit organization that protects forests for future generations. 

We are an open, membership-led organization that sets standards under which forests and companies are certified. Our membership consists of three equally weighted chambers -- environmental, economic, and social -- to ensure the balance and the highest level of integrity.

FSC US is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and operates as a National Office of FSC International, which is based in Bonn, Germany.
