Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC)

Many of Glatfelter’s operations are third party certified to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody Standard. Please see the table below for details.

What this means to you
FSC Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification provides our customers with third party verification that Glatfelter products come from well-managed, non-controversial sources. This means that Glatfelter does not own or accept wood or fiber from endangered forests, old growth forests, rainforests, areas in violation of traditional and civil rights, or illegally harvested or stolen wood. Additionally, forests being converted to plantations or non-forest use or forests where genetically modified trees are planted are unacceptable sources of fiber for Glatfelter’s operations.

FSC CoC certification also means that Glatfelter now has the ability to pass FSC credits through the chain-of-custody process for those customers who require certified product. For those who do not require certified product, you can rest assured that the statements above apply to all Glatfelter products produced in our certified facilities. Product Group Lists required by the FSC standard are available upon request.

What is FSC?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international body founded in 1993, which accredits certification organizations. The goal of FSC is to promote environmentally responsible, socially beneficial & economically viable management of the world’s forests, by establishing a worldwide standard of recognized and respected Principles of Forest Stewardship.

The Forest Stewardship Council oversees an international labeling scheme for forest products that provides assurance that products carrying the FSC logo have been certified as coming from forests in compliance with the internationally recognized FSC Principles and Criteria of Forest Stewardship.
