What is FSC?
Established through the collaboration of various organizations across the world, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a non-profit organization with an aim of setting standards for wood based products. The products certified by FSC are made of wood from natural forest or agricultural forest that has been managed properly according to the international acceptance to promote sustainability. There are 2 types of FSC Certifications;
FSC-FM: Forest Management Certification is issued to certify forest management with a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
FSC-CoC: Chain of Custody certification is issued to guarantee that wood product comes from FSC-certified forest and FSC-certified processes right from raw-material selection, proper storage, control of timber amount, sale, to delivery. In addition, accurate measures are in place to ensure that the certified products will not be mixed up with uncertified materials.
What is the importance of FSC?
Presently, FSC has been well recognized and widely accepted across the world particularly in Europe and America. As countries in these two continents prefer FSC-certified products, both downstream and upstream manufacturers have paid increasing attention to the FSC. To obtain the FSC-CoC certifications, products must receive proper environmental management from the start of the supply chain or from upstream manufacturers down to the delivery of products to end consumers. In other words, when consumers choose FSC-certified products, they support not just the properly-managed forest but also the proper environmental management throughout all stages of the supply chain.
As a manufacturer in the supply chain of paper and containers industry, Siam Kraft Industry Co., Ltd. firmly believes that FSC plays a key role in leading the way to the sustainable future for the society, the economy and the environment. We are, therefore, committed to following the FSC guidelines in facilitating the balanced world.
