New Swedish FSC Forest Management Standard

The Board of Directors of FSC Sweden has in consensus agreed on the revised standard.

The Board of Directors of FSC Sweden has in consensus agreed on the revised standard for FSC-certified forest management in Sweden. The standard will as soon as possible be sent to FSCs accreditation unit for endorsement.

"It is a victory for all stakeholders in FSC that we now have updated rules for FSC-certified forest management in Sweden. The unified decision on the standard shows once again that FSC has the model that can get environmental-, social- and economic stakeholders to agree on how an industry can be managed in a responsible way", says Peter Roberntz, Executive Director of FSC Sweden.

The remaining parts of the revised standard will now be translated into English and will then be sent to FSCs accreditation unit.

The English version of the standard is available in the section for documents on the webpage.
