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.

FSC is the world’s most trusted sustainable forest management solution that adds environmental, social and economic benefits to construction projects.
