Why FSC forests?

In times of growing complexities and challenges with regards to climate, bidiversity, clean drinking water and health, the relevance of responsible forest management becomes increasingly evident.

FSC is world’s most recognised intrument for sustainable forest management. It has over 25 years of experience and involves over 200 million hectares of forests. 

FSC certification ensures that important (ecosystem) services of forests such as the capture and storage of CO and biodiversity conservation are being maintained and restored. It also supports forest managers in creating healthier revenue models. This way, forests are being rewarded for their true value and remain intact for future generations.  

Companies increasingly understand the importance of responsible forest management and therefore invest in it. They thereby expand their positive impact and contribute to climate resilient forests. What role does your organisation want to play in preserving forests and their ecosystem services?

Advantages

As part of responsible forest management, we take measures in FSC-forests across the globe that ensure the maintenance, conservation and restoration of various forest ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration and biodiversity maintenance. With the FSC Ecosystem Services Procedure (FSC-PRO-ES-30-006) we can demonstrate and verify that the (desired) impact is actually the result of the implemented measure. This allows FSC-certified projects to offer many extras:

TANGIBLE STORIES

Concrete figures and stories of specific projects far away or nearby, with impacts on carbon sequestration, water services, biodiversity, soil and eco-tourism.

VERIFIED RESULTS

Specific forest projects together with their positive impacts have been audited and verified by independent certifiers (through using the new FSC ES Procedure FSC-PRO-30-006) and therefore carry the FSC quality mark.

GREATER IMPACT

Through responsible forest management, forest ecosystems and the services these provide are being maintained. This ensures a solid contribution to the Global Goals and thereby to combating climate change.

‘Through contributing to climateproof forestmanagement we are involved with sustainable production of wood in the Netherlands as well as storage of carbon. Moreover, we contribute directly to a more healthy and sustainable living environment.’

Impact

FSC-certified forest projects provide the following impacts:

CO₂-storage

Forests play a significant role in regulating the earth’s climate by sequestrating CO on a large scale.

Soil maintenance

Responsible forest management ensures that healthy soils are maintained, which proves particularly important in times of (increasinly) irregular wet precipitation.

Biodiversity

Forests are home to a vast amount of biodiversity including plant and animal species.

Eco-tourism

Forests provide various cultural services such as eco-tourism, which contribute to our health and wellbeing.

Communities

Forests are livelihoods to many local communities and provide an important source of income.

Water streams

Forest provide sufficient clean drinking water

Together we build a sustainable future

Our mission is to work with organisations and governments across the globe to safeguard more forests and the services they provide and to responsibly manage them.

PARTIES WE HAVE ALREADY WORKED WITH

FSC - Investeer in bos - VolkerWessels
FSC - Investeer in bos - Inproba
FSC - Investeer in bos - KWS
FSC - Investeer in bos - Beautiful Cups

‘Through the process of expanding Beautiful Cups in Europe, more space could be created to support a new rainforest project and a local NGO. Together with FSC, we made a choice for NGO Mpingo (MCDI) in Tanzania. Mpingo supports 40 local villages in Tanzania with responsible forest management. Right now, Beautiful Cups helps these villages with afforestation and herewith contributes to new chances for both the forest and local communities.’
