FSC® stands for Forest Stewardship Council®. It was founded as an independent non-governmental organization to promote the responsible management of forests. The FSC® system ensures the use of wood that comes from forests that consider the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.
In 2022 worldwide around 200.000.000 hectares of forest are FSC® certified and there are about 50.000 certificates all over the globe.
The certification process takes place along the entire product chain and confirms that the material is FSC® certified along the entire supply chain. The FSC® logo identifies wood and paper that comes from sustainably managed forests.
GARDENA has been FSC® certified since 2005 and contributes the compliance with the social and environmental standards of the FSC® certification system. GARDENA only uses 100% FSC® certified wood in their products.
