Economic impacts of FSC Certification
Profitability and sustainability in responsible forestry: Economic impacts of FSC certification on forest operators
A new WWF study offers much needed insights into the economic impacts of FSC certification on forest operators.
On average, the companies earned an extra US$ 1.80 for every cubic meter of FSC-certified roundwood or equivalent, over and above any new costs, while requiring on average six years to break even on their FSC investment.
This study can aid forest operators, as well as their financiers and donors, analyze individual projects, thereby facilitating more efficient allocation of resources.
