FSC Forest Week 2022

20 Sep 2022

This year from 24th to 30th September, Havwoods is proud to participate in the FSC Forest Week campaign by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Find out below what FSC Forest Week is all about, how choosing sustainably-sourced products can help create resilient forests for the future and explore Havwoods' sustainably certified range.

The theme of FSC Forest Week for 2022 is “Choose Forests. Choose FSC.” By choosing FSC-certified products, you are helping to protect forests and all the life they sustain.

Forests play a key role in combatting climate change and supporting biodiversity. Many products, including the ones we use to build and furnish our homes and places we visit, come from forests. If timber products are illegally sourced and uncertified, then this risks an unsustainable increase in deforestation. 

Therefore, FSC promotes sustainable forest management so forests and people can thrive.  If you choose responsibly sourced and certified products, the certifications cover everything - from ensuring that every tree that is cut down is re-planted to managing the actual environment of the wildlife, to ensuring they employ local folk - and they get a fair salary. FSC provides one of the world's most rigorous and trusted forest certification systems and is trusted by NGOs, businesses and consumers to help protect healthy, resilient forests for all, forever.

Havwoods takes pride in supporting sustainable management of the world’s forests by achieving FSC certification (FSCC009500). During FSC Forest Week, we will celebrate our commitment to forests, and encourage our customers to be forest stewards themselves.
