What is FSC certified?

FSC certified refers to a certification granted by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an international organisation that promotes responsible forest management and sustainable practices. When a product is FSC certified, it means that the raw materials used to produce the product, such as wood or paper, come from responsibly managed forests that meet the FSC's strict environmental, social and economic standards.

For example, if a teak outdoor furniture piece is labeled as FSC certified, it indicates that the teak wood used comes from forests that are managed responsibly. This means that the wood is sourced sustainably, ensuring that the forest ecosystem is protected, local communities' rights are respected and workers' welfare is taken into account.


By choosing FSC certified products, customers can support sustainable practices and contribute to the conservation of forests and biodiversity worldwide. FSC certification helps ensure that the products we purchase are sourced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, making it a valuable consideration when purchasing outdoor furniture or any wood-based products.
