FSC in Italy
FSC Italia was founded in 2001 as a non-profit association, in harmony with the objectives of FSC International. Also in Italy the FSC brand has assumed a leading role in the forest products market such as wood, paper and non-wood products (such as cork), placing our country in second place in the international classification of FSC certifications of the Custody. FSC proposes itself as a point of reference for legality and sustainability in the wood-paper supply chain, in accordance with the most current standards of responsible management of the forest resource. With more than 500 companies already FSC-certified in the Italian furniture sector, certification is increasingly perceived as a tool not only to guarantee the origin of wood, ensure virtuous and transparent supply chains, but also to communicate positive impacts on forests and people and promote increasingly sustainable production systems.
