The Mission

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) International with its headquarter in Bonn works to take care of our forests and those who rely on them: by protecting plant and animal species, Indigenous Peoples’ rights, forest workers’ safety, and much more. We achieve this through FSC certification, ensuring forests around the world are responsibly managed. This goal requires, inter alia, a successful licensing business with a rigid protection of FSC’s trademarks and a risk management with suitable compliance tools. FSC is in this regard the leading Certification Scheme on the market. We are a global player being active in more than 30 countries and offer a multicultural work environment in our offices.
