New FSC Board Chairperson Appointed and 2019 Board Constitution Adopted

29.01.2019 Share

Hans Djurberg, representative from the FSC International Economic Chamber North, has been appointed as the Chairperson of the FSC International Board of Directors.

Hans Djurberg works as Sustainability Director for Svenska Cellulosa AB, a Swedish timber, pulp and paper manufacturer. His work involves leading a collaborative effort between major Swedish companies to engage more pro-actively and constructively in the dialogue on forests.

Ralph Schmidt-Liermann was also appointed as chair of the Board Governance Committee, while Fran Price will continue as vice-chair and member of the Board Executive Committee. 

In deciding on its constitution in 2019, the board took into consideration several factors, like keeping momentum in the current board processes, ensuring a healthy rotation of people and chambers in leadership roles, and maintaining a board succession plan.
