What is the FSC and what does it do?

 

Why are forests so important? They provide us with clean air, water, shade and food and many of the paper products we use in our daily lives. In order to protect them, we are working with the Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC®), a non-profit, international NGO which works to ensure Forests For All Forever. A product which bears the FSC label will be made with materials which meet FSC’s strict environmental, social and economic requirements. Therefore, when using FSC-certified products you can be assured that you are supporting the protection of the world’s forests, every day. 
And there’s more: by choosing FSC-certified products, consumers can join the commitment made by companies such as Sofidel to develop transparent and sustainable supply chains.
Because your purchases are important, and so are forests.
