Scope and content

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) was established in 1994 through the support of businesses, environmentalists, and community groups. The FSC created a voluntary market-based approach towards global forestry practices that allows for the certification of forest products that were harvested in an environmentally responsible manner. First established in Mexico, the FSC Secretariat relocated from Oaxaca to Bonn, Germany in 1999. As of 2019, over 199,000,000 hectares of forests have been certified by the FSC.

Records in this series focus on the FSC in British Columbia, FSC reports, business plans, resolutions, publications, and the development of regional certification standards for BC. Other records include correspondence between Greenpeace and FSC, press releases, and publications by forestry companies and the FSC. The series contains no subseries and only file level arrangement of records exists. File titles are based on the content of items.
