Why FSC Matters to Us

As a manufacturer, we understand the importance of sourcing materials ethically and responsibly. FSC assures our customers that Xanita boards are not only environmentally friendly but also support the preservation of forests and the livelihoods of local communities.

What is FSC? 

FSC certification is a globally recognised standard that ensures responsible forest management practices. FSC unites individuals, businesses, governments, and NGOs under one common goal: protecting healthy, resilient forests for all. They have 10 main principles which form the foundation of the forestry standards: 

  1. Comply with all applicable laws
  2. Maintain or improve the social and economic well-being of workers
  3. Uphold the rights of indigenous peoples
  4. Maintain or improve the social and economic well-being of workers
  5. Manage their products and services in a way that maintains or improves their long-term economic viability, social benefits, and environmental benefits
  6. Maintain, conserve, and/or restore the ecosystem services and environmental values of managed forests, and also avoid, repair, or mitigate negative environmental impacts
  7. Establish a management plan that outlines their economic, environmental, and social policies and objectives
  8. Demonstrate progress toward meeting these objectives
  9. Maintain or improve high conservation values
  10. Ensure that all management activities comply with FSC principles and criteria. 

These 10 principles help ensure we take care of our forests around the world. Forests are one of our most important resources in the world, offering a renewable supply of the materials and goods we need for a more sustainable future.
