The Value of FSC in the Built Environment
Responsible sourcing of wood can benefit construction projects in many ways. Wood is more carbon and energy efficient in comparison to other building materials. However, wood can originate from unsustainable forest management practices which can undermine its benefits. This risk can be mitigated by sourcing FSC certified wood. FSC is the world’s most trusted sustainable forest management solution that adds environmental, social and economic benefits to construction projects.
FSC labels can be found on millions of products and items of packaging around the world. What does the label mean? Simply put: by choosing products with FSC labels, you are helping to take care of the world’s forests.
