1. FSC – certification
The FSC certification of firewood, charcoal and wood chips ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that ensure environmental and social standards.

In order for a consumer to purchase an FSC certified product, every company that has ownership of a forest product raw material must be FSC certified.
