Environmentally Friendly ProductsFSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®)
FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) is an independent, not-for-profit organization with a diverse membership representing environmental, business, and social interests globally. Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), one of the primary certifying organizations for FSC, has evaluated and certified that Royal Plywood meets all the requirements of a chain of custody certified distributor. This directly supports international environmental standards through appropriate conservation of the forest's economic resources.
Currently FSC is the recognized standard for sustainable forestry by the USGBC (United States Green Building Council). Please see the USGBC website for strategies to implement FSC Certified wood into your LEED projects.
