FSC-certified forest areas in Russia reached historic highs

25 November 2019 ` 16:38  

In October 2019, the main indicators of the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) voluntary forest certification in Russia, i.e. the area of certified forests and the number of forest management and supply chain certificates, reached record-breaking values for the entire observation period.

According to the report of FSC International with the monthly country-by-country statistics on the development of FSC certification in the world, the certified forest area in Russia increased to 47.65 million ha (according to effective certificates). This is almost a quarter of all FSC-certified forests on the planet: as of October 2019, a total of over 200 million hectares of forests in 82 countries of the world have been certified. Russia also ranks first by the number of forest management certificates – it has 186 of them, far ahead of Brazil (having 131).
