WHAT IS FSC CHAIN OF CUSTODY?

July 2 2014

Decor Systems is committed to holistic building design and construction processes. We are an FSC® (FSC-C118724)

certified Chain-of-Custody manufacturer. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is an independent, not for profit, nongovernmental organization based in Bonn, Germany. FSC® provides standard setting, trademark assurance and accreditation services for companies and organizations interested in responsible forestry across the globe.

Emerging from dialogue at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, the Forest Stewardship Council was founded in 1993. FSC® brought together three seemingly antagonistic groups: environmentalists, industrialists and social activists. Its mission and governance reflects the balance between these original constituents in that FSC® seeks to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. Each is given equal weight. FSC® forest management standards are based on 10 Principles and Criteria of responsible forest management. The operative phrase is “well-managed forests,” which include principles addressing sustainable harvesting and bio-diversity, among others.

 

Since 1993 FSC® has distinguished itself through it’s:

  • Independence and credibility
  • Recognition as the global standard
  • Participation by all stakeholders
  • Extensive Chain of Custody participants
  • Relationships with major retailers/wholesalers
  • Third party certification

FSC Chain of Custody Manufacturer

Decor Systems is a Chain of Custody Manufacturer. This means we have been inspected, an operational plan for processing FSC® wood products has been put in place and approved, and that we have demonstrated a commitment and understanding of FSC® principles. For our customers it means we form part of a pedigree chain of suppliers, starting at the actual certified forest plot, and continuing through the supply chain to the end user. A paper trail insuring the use of guaranteed uncontaminated FSC® wood accompanies each link in the chain.
