FSC® is a global, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. The members include some of the world’s leading environmental NGOs (WWF and Greenpeace), businesses (Tetra Pak and Mondi PLC) and social organizations (the National Aboriginal Forestry Association of Canada) , as well as forest owners and managers, processing companies and campaigners, and individuals. FSC® works to improve forest management worldwide, and through certification creates an incentive for forest owners and managers to follow best social and environmental practices.
The growing demand for FSC® certified products tells forest owners that businesses and consumers prefer products from well managed forests. This incentive brings direct benefits to the forest, such as protecting biodiversity, indigenous peoples' rights, worker’s rights, and areas of significant environmental or cultural importance. FSC® provides a connection between the forest and the end user, ensuring that products with the FSC® label uphold principles and criteria which bring the highest social and environmental benefits.
ISO 9001:2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
