Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC®) is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organisation established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.
Lifestyle Brands International recognises that business leadership carries a responsibility to the environment and the world’s forests and fully supports responsible forest management practices that result in long-term social and economic benefits.
We are positioned to influence both supply and demand in the market, and thus contribute to the development of environmental solutions that conserve, protect and restore forests, by meeting a set of global standards for ecologically, socially and economically responsible forestry.
Lifestyle Brands International establishes the following policy commitments, to ensure the sustainability of our business, and to promote the development of markets for environmentally responsible forest products.
