Credible certification just one part of the solution

Canopy supports FSC as part of the solutions for forest conservation globally and as a means to ensure a secure supply of more environmentally sound forest products. Together with the protection of large intact forest landscapes, endangered species habitats and threatened forest ecosystem types, FSC certification can contribute to a brighter future for the planet’s endangered forests and forest-dependent communities.

The Ancient Forest Friendly policies developed by the companies Canopy works with call on paper mills to produce papers with maximized post-consumer and de-inked recycled fiber, as well as foster the development and use of agricultural residue fibers. Where virgin tree fiber is required, the stated preference is for FSC certified forest fiber, ideally from second growth forests or tree farms.
