Sustainable forestry is one of the most effective means to mitigate climate change.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere as they grow.
When harvested, carbon is stored in every piece of furniture, timber-framed house and piece of paper.
FSC certification ensures responsible management of forests with new trees growing, absorbing more carbon – a prerequisite to upholding the cycle.
At the same time, FSC certification requires the maintenance or enhancement of the biodiversity of forests and demands that communities depending on these forests benefit from the forestry operations.
The bottom line is FSC is a good thing, it does have a cost, but if you accept that and join in, you make a difference.
