Supplying controlled wood
Not all companies are able to source 100 % FSC-certified wood for their products. In this instance, they can supplement it with controlled wood from a forest management company that has achieved controlled wood certification.
In order for forest owners and managers to gain this certification, and supply controlled wood, they must meet the FSC controlled wood standard.
Meeting this standard means that the material sourced has not been harvested illegally, in violation of traditional or civil rights, or in a way that threatens high conservation value (HCV) areas.
