FSC and PEFC Ban Russian Wood Use for Certified Paper
Both the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) have barred wood and timber from Russia and Belarus from their certified products.
According to an article in PrintWeek, PEFC said all timber originating from those countries was now considered to be “conflict timber.” FSC’s international board of directors also agreed to suspend all trading certificates in Russia and Belarus and to “block all controlled wood sourcing from the two countries.”
