Why is our FSC certification important?
We have high standards in our mission of sustainability, which is why we are proud to be FSC certified. The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is a third-party, largely recognized nonprofit organization that sets the standards for responsible forest management – that includes bamboo forests, too! Their stated mission is to end global deforestation.
As the FSC itself puts it:
“FSC forest management certification confirms that the forest is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring it sustains economic viability.”
In essence, an FSC certification shows that the product is meeting basic ethical standards, and that it is not the result of deforestation or illegal activity.
