Wood Lexicon Betterwood Technical terms


The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®®) is an international forestry certification system that guarantees that wood and paper products come from responsibly managed forests. The FSC®® seal is now one of the most renowned seals in the field of sustainability and may be printed on wood products if it has been certified that the product meets the strict guidelines for the protection of workers, the local population, the Biodiversity and the environment was grown and harvested. With FSC®® products, the entire retail chain (see Chain of Custody) – from forestry to retail – must be certified and inspected.
