What is FSC®?

FSC® is the first international quality mark with strict requirements for sustainable and social forest management, supported by governments, companies and environmental organizations. 100% FSC® wood comes completely from responsible forests. In addition to the requirements for forest management, FSC® also uses social requirements such as sufficient pay and responsible working conditions for forest workers.


What is PEFC?

PEFC is an international quality mark for wood (products) and paper. PEFC stands for Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification. It is supported by governments, companies and regional organizations. Wood with the PEFC label comes from sustainably and socially managed forests. Forests with a high nature value should not be exploited, as should vulnerable forest areas. Logging along watercourses on steep slopes is not allowed, because erosion can occur here. Logging should also not lead to the disappearance of a forest, the loss of biodiversity or the deterioration of the natural recovery capacity. In other words, it is no longer allowed to cut down, then grow again.


Arco is – as company - certified as both FSC® and PEFC.
