Why Wisanka is certified by FSC ?
FSC certification shows that we comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market. Public concern about the condition of the world’s forests and wood resources is increasing, and FSC provides us with credible solutions to complex environmental and social problems.
FSC certification is an effective way to gain public and consumer recognition for our responsible practices and can also help us set and meet Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets. It can also increase credibility with customers and business partners, as well as with financial and regulatory organizations, helping to protect our brand and reputation. FSC certification allows us to access more environmentally sensitive markets, and governments and businesses are increasingly including FSC-certified products in their procurement programs.
Why FSC ?
1. The FSC label guarantees that felled trees are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally.
2. Some forests are completely protected, to protect rare animals and plants.
3. FSC is the only wood certification scheme supported by major environmental charities, including WWF, Greenpeace and The Woodland Trust.
4. FSC protects the rights of indigenous peoples to use forests. If they have a sacred site in the forest, then the site is exempt from logging.
5. FSC provides a guarantee that future generations will be able to enjoy the benefits of forests.
6. FSC is a market-based initiative that also ensures better conditions for forests and the communities whose livelihoods depend on them.
7. All wood is tracked from the forest to the shop. Every link between the forest and the consumer is certified so that it can be clearly identified which wood is FSC certified and which is not.
What is Chain of Custody ?
Chain of Custody certification applies to producers, processors and traders of FSC certified forest products. This ensures that FSC ingredients and products have been inspected at every stage of processing, so customers who purchase products sold with FSC claims can be confident that the products are truly FSC certified.
