FSC’s 2021-2026 Global Strategy envisions resilient forests that sustain life on earth, in a new forest paradigm, where the true value of forests is recognized and fully incorporated into society worldwide. FSC is enhancing its value for members and certificate holders by growing from a trusted certification scheme into an effective brand that is widely known, understood, and respected.
It is by becoming a powerful market force that FSC will make a vital difference in how consumers and producers see and value forests and the tangible – and intangible – benefits we derive from them every day. FSC’s Global Strategy will respond more effectively to FSC’s stakeholders’ needs, increase the market value of the FSC brand, and transform the way producers and consumers alike use and perceive forest products. FSC’s strategies will:
- Advance FSC in value chains that have the highest potential for contributing towards our 2050 vision.
- Accelerate the market uptake of FSC-certified products and ecosystem services.
- Unleash the power of data to demonstrate positive outcomes.
- Scale up benefits for Indigenous Peoples, communities, smallholders and workers.
