The FSC certification is recognized throughout the world and is more than formal confirmation of Fibria's good practices and socio-environmental responsibility in the management of its forests. It shows the seriousness with which the company is embracing the commitment made to society when it began its activities, three years ago. It is also in harmony with Fibria's philosophy: to develop the renewable forestry business as a sustainable source of life, while generating economic value and respectable profits and promoting environmental conservation, social inclusion and improved quality of life.
FSC certification is also increasingly demanded in the consumer markets. So this also strengthens Fibria's competitiveness and reputation as a responsible company in all aspects of sustainability and thereby opens up new business opportunities in markets where it is already active.
About the FSC- The FSC is an independent, non-governmental body that is based on Bonn, Germany, and is represented in more than 70 countries. It was set up in 1993 by environmental bodies, silviculturists, indigenous peoples and certification bodies, with a view to promoting responsible forest management around the world. The FSC requirements are based on the principles and criteria of good practice in forest management. They also take into account the traceability of the products being sold, as well as those processed at companies that use materials from certified forests.
