The FSC Market Info Pack 2016–2017 is now available on the FSC website. This biennial document presents an overview of sectors and recent market trends, with relevant figures and statistics on the performance of FSC.


In the 2016–2017 edition, you will find information on FSC's 2020 targets. The FSC Global Strategic Plan 2015–2020 calls for the realisation of a new forest paradigm by 2050, in which the true value of forests is recognised and fully incorporated into society worldwide – and ambitious targets need meaningful commitments and action.

In the Market Info Pack, FSC introduce six indicators that give an overall view of their presence across the supply chain and provide the baseline of their current share so that they can track their performance to 2020.

In working towards their goals, FSC are focusing more on a sectoral approach. In 2016 and 2017, this included cork, fashion, packaging, rubber, and sport. FSC have participated in several key initiatives in these industries that have achieved some important results. Their work over the past year has included engagement with global brands to drive the use of sustainable and responsible forest products across key sectors. The Market Info Pack contains more information on FSC involvement with these key sectors and companies, and on the current status of FSC certification.

FSC also commissioned two studies to collect data and develop deep insight into the market needs of FSC stakeholders. Some of the key results are presented in the Market Info Pack. Collectively, these studies show that certificate holders and members believe the FSC brand offers consumers a clear sign that their organisations are serious about responsible forest management.

These are all crucial markers of progress towards the new forest paradigm. By becoming a powerful market force, 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.

Please download the FSC Market Info Pack to find out about the benefits FSC can bring to your business, and join FSC as they take forests conservation to a new level of impact.
