FSC Forest Week - 23 to 29 September 2023, is a worldwide campaign that calls upon all forest stewards to help drive consumer awareness about the importance of sustainable forestry. Its aim is to inspire these customers to act by choosing FSC-certified products.
Promoting healthy forests is crucial. Thriving forests are key to our fight against the climate and biodiversity crises. To achieve our vision of healthy and resilient forests that sustain life on Earth, it is critical to raise awareness and inspire responsible actions that positively impact our environment.
This year’s theme shows the social and environmental benefits of FSC certification, encouraging us to help tackle climate change, biodiversity loss, and deforestation.
With 1.6 billion people reliant on them for their livelihoods, and approximately 80 per cent of the world’s terrestrial animal species calling them home, it is our shared responsibility to protect these precious ecosystems. Choosing FSC-certified products helps safeguard biodiversity and protect endangered species. Together, let’s make a lasting impact.
By learning to Trust the Tree and choosing FSC, we can actively contribute to responsible forestry. How? Look for the FSC ‘check-tree’ label, found on millions of products worldwide. It verifies sustainable sourcing from forest to store shelves.
