Important FSC forest management principles
Ecosystem services: the economic value credited by forests must be fed back into forest management.
Pesticide policy: reduce the use of chemical pesticides in FSC-certified forests and plantations
Protecting the Forests: using High Conservation Values.
Conservation of forest landscapes: by preventing fragmentation of large-scale forest landscapes (think of the rainforests of Brazil).
Verification of compliance with the FSC guidelines is carried out by recommended, accredited inspection bodies.
