Scientific Certification Systems Chain-of-Custody Certificate
FSC is a forest conservation program whose goal is "to recognize the highest levels
of performance in ... environmental protection and social responsibility
... and to stimulate continuous improvement in sustainable
development." They accredit third-party certification bodies such as SCS to conduct assessments of forestry operations
and companies that sell lumber or products made from wood.
These assessments are conducted using regional representatives
and indicators that are based on the FSC Principles and Criteria.
