Consultation open: Controlled wood strategy

In order to further develop the controlled wood strategy, FSC is holding an open consultation following the outcome of the recent Controlled Wood Global Strategy Workshop (28 February to 2 March 2017).

The consultation will be held from 09 May - 18 June (extended end-date). In order to participate in the consultation, please register here (you will receive a confirmation e-mail). Registration will allow you to participate in any FSC public consultations.

The outcome of this consultation will be reviewed and revisited in discussions conducted during the second global meeting in August. Ultimately, this will result in the final controlled wood strategy document, which will be presented at the FSC general assembly in October 2017.

If you have any questions about the consultation content, please contact William Cook: w.cook at fsc point org.

The current model of FSC relies heavily on the presence and continuation of the FSC Mix products, and by extension, controlled wood.Given its importance to the FSC system, and as our members and stakeholders have varied and differing opinions on its future, the FSC International Board of Directors determined that a strategy needed to be drafted to determine the future of FSC Mix products in the FSC system in time for the FSC General Assembly in October 2017.
