14.02.2020 Share

FSC stakeholders are invited to give their input into the future direction of FSC, by taking part in a consultation on the first draft of the updated FSC Global Strategic Plan 2021-2026. The consultation period started on 18 December 2019 and will close in approximately two weeks, on 26 February 2020.

To participate in the consultation, as well as to access the first draft and supporting documents, visit the FSC consultation platform here.

The draft FSC Global Strategic Plan for 2021–2026 builds on the lessons learned from the past five years while defining the level of change and core mechanisms needed now to meet the previously set 2050 beacon. The 2050 beacon calls for a new forest paradigm, where the true value of forests is recognized and fully incorporated into society worldwide.

FSC International Board Chairperson in 2019, Hans Djurberg, called on members and other stakeholders to participate in the consultation. “Our core challenge remains: the incentives for forest destruction are still greater than the incentives for responsible forest management. FSC’s core strength is that we’re a convener of voices, and that we have positive impact on the ground. This consultation is your chance to bring your voice to the table. Bring your ideas, concerns and perspectives. We need your input,” said Djurberg.

This call was echoed by FSC Director General, Kim Carstensen: “Around a quarter of the wood that reaches the market comes from FSC certified forests. That’s the good news. The bad news is that we still have a forest crisis on our hands, and we need to bring the power of our members and stakeholders – who provide the real solutions – to bear as we set our course for the next five years.”
