FSC Ecosystem Services Procedure

The FSC Ecosystem Services Procedure provides new tools to strengthen incentives for the protection of ecosystem services: - Impact verification: The procedure provides a global approach that FSC certificate holders can use to demonstrate the impact of their forest management activities on ecosystem services. - Ecosystem Services Claims: Verified impacts give rise to FSC ecosystem services claims, which will provide governments, investors, buyers, and businesses with assurance that the impacts they are paying for do preserve ecosystem services
