FSC Good for Forests, Good for Business


This year for #FSCFriday FSC Australia and New Zealand, are promoting the benefits of FSC with business.

Join us for FSC Friday.

For over 20 years, FSC and partners have worked together to take care of forests and the people, plants, and animal species that depend on them.

The FSC label featured on certified products assures that wood, paper, and other forest products are responsibly sourced from well-managed forests and recycled materials.

During September, FSC invite supporters all around the world join in the global celebration, to raise awareness about responsible forest management and the role the FSC plays, all shared through social media with the hashtag #FSCFRIDAY
