FAQ: What is the relationship between the FSC and the Rainforest Alliance?

The Rainforest Alliance is one of the founders of the Forest Stewardship Council, a standard setting body governed by a membership representative of social, economic and environmental chambers.

Today, the Rainforest Alliance continues our support of FSC as a member of the environmental chamber. This is one of the ways we contribute to more sustainable forest management, as we believe that FSC certification is a proven tool in improving livelihoods and affecting positive outcomes for forests and communities.
