The FSC® label is your assurance of wood from responsible sources

One of the major global warming culprits is deforestation of the world's forests. Approximately 20% of greenhouse gas emissions occur from deforestation and the burning of forests.

Garden furniture is one of JYSK's core areas and we are among Europe's largest retailers of garden furniture. We therefore work actively to fight unsustainable and illegal logging and burning. Since 1990 JYSK has worked to increase its share of garden furniture produced from FSC®-certified wood. Today, all of our wooden garden furniture is FSC-labelled. (FSC® N001715)

FSC-certified furniture

FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an internationally recognised non-profit organisation. FSC label is your assurance of responsible logging and improved living conditions for local populations in some of the world's poorest countries. FSC label can be on wood from around the world - from the tropical rainforests to the Siberian coniferous forests. In addition to taking environmental responsibility, FSC is also working for social and economic responsibility. Social responsibility includes, among other things, that the FSC protects indigenous and local populations living in the forests. Meanwhile, those who work in the forests are also guaranteed education, safety and decent wages. The economic responsibility includes that the owners of FSC-certified forests get a decent price for their wood.

This means for example that:

  • In an FSC forest there is not more wood felled, than the forest itself can reproduce
  • In an FSC forest there are strict requirements for the use of pesticides and chemicals
  • In an FSC forest the workers get a decent wage and decent working conditions
  • In an FSC forest humans and animals are respected

A significant factor regarding climate change is the destruction of the world’s forests due to unsustainable deforestation. From construction to home decor, wood as a material is widely used across the world, and that is why it is important that forest-based materials such as wood are sourced from sustainable sources so natural environments are not harmed. Many of us recognise and know of the FSC label, but what is it specifically and what does it mean for deciding which wooden garden furniture to purchase?

The Forest Stewardship Council® 

The Forest Stewardship Council, commonly known as FSC, is an internationally recognised non-profit organisation and labelling system for wood, paper, and other forest-based materials that originate from sustainable forestry or other responsibly managed sources.

The FSC label is your assurance that logging rates are restricted to sustainable levels, allowing forests to continuously regenerate and regrow. Additionally, it guarantees that all wood can be traced back to its source forest. Learn more about FSC here
