Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)

The FSC® forest management certification confirms that a forest is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring it sustains economic viability.

In order to receive FSC® certification, a forest operation must adhere to ten principles covering a broad range of issues - from maintaining high conservation values to supporting the local community and protecting workers’ rights, as well as monitoring the environmental and social impacts of the forest management.

FSC® is the only wood certification scheme endorsed by major environmental charities, including WWF & Greenpeace.

BM TRADA Chain of Custody

Chain of custody certification provides independently-verified assurance that the wood used originates from responsibly sourced forests and that the material has been tracked through every stage of the process from forest to end-user.

By implementing and maintaining a robust chain of custody system, companies can provide assurances to suppliers and clients that their products are sourced and produced in compliance with the highest ecological, social and economic standards.

Lacey Act Compliant

The United States Lacey Act was originally passed in 1900, and its impacts have given it renown as the most successful conservation law.

The Lacey Act prohibits import and trade of illegally harvested plants, illegal logging and associated trade. The Lacey Act also requires importers to declare information important to the timber or wood product's origin, encouraging much greater due care and creating more transparency in the supply chain.

LEED Credit Qualifying

In the LEED 2009 commercial rating system (NC, CI), the Certified Wood (MRc7) offers a single point if at least 50% by cost of permanently installed wood products are FSC certified.

While the credits specific to FSC-certified material sourcing for LEED 2009 and LEED v4 are different, using FSC-certified materials on a LEED project will contribute towards credit achievement no matter which LEED version the project team is using.
