FSC Friday is back on 29th September 2017 to celebrate responsible forest management

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) will hold its annual, international event – FSC Friday - on 29th September 2017.

The initiative - open both to FSC stakeholders and the general public - aims at celebrating the world’s forests, raising awareness of FSC and the importance of responsible forest management, wood and paper sourcing.

FSC Friday represents an opportunity to inform and educate people - including employees, students, local communities - of the value of forest certifications and the vital role forests play in our lives. "It is a chance to increase awareness and encourage people to look for the FSC logo and buy FSC certified products," explain the organisers.

Last year, FSC Friday was celebrated by 31 countries across the world including the UK, where over 45 businesses, schools and groups took part by holding awareness raising events, ranging from dressing green and baking cakes to holding presentations and talks.

FSC certification bodies and certificate and licence holders in the UK are invited to register here for FREE FSC Friday digital resources.

The initiative also includes a photo contest showcasing FSC certified forests and wood products.
