About FSC Malaysia:
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), is a global not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting responsible forest management around the world. Founded in 1994, FSC remains the world’s premier and most respected forest certification scheme, providing assurance for the responsible management of all forest products. FSC is governed through its global membership with members from social, environmental and economic backgrounds. Together, these three chambers make consensus decisions about FSC’s certification scheme and its governance.
FSC Malaysia was officially launched in November 2014. To date, there are over 755,000 hectares of Malaysian forests from 13 Forest Managements certified to FSC’s standards, together with over 180 Chain of Custody certificates
