Information for G00411

Overview of global trends in FSC certificates

Kirsti Thornber


This overview is based on a database of all active certificates compiled by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) in early 1999, in association with IIED under its project "Instruments for Sustainable Private Sector Forestry". It is a purely factual summary of information and at this stage does not attempt to draw interpretations or conclusions. No statistical tests of significance have been carried out as yet. There were a total of 156 certificates and an area of 14,992,960 hectares at the time the database was compiled.
