Use the Logo

(© FSC UK)© FSC UKFSC UK strongly encourages the use of the FSC trademarks by FSC certificate and promotional licence holders. Using the trademarks helps to identify FSC certified products and raises awareness of FSC and the importance of responsible forest management.

In a 2017 survey, 54% of respondents reported recognising the FSC logo*.

Displaying the FSC logo can have a marked effect on purchasing decisions; 55% of respondents confirmed a preference for FSC certified products bearing the FSC logo**. Further, when FSC certification is specified as the only differentiator (e.g. cost, quality etc. are the same), this figure rises to 72%***

FSC has five registered trademarks:

The name ‘Forest Stewardship Council®

The initials ‘FSC®

If you are considering using the FSC trademarks in any way, please see how to gain permission, below. If you would like any guidance regarding the use of the trademarks please contact FSC UK.
