What is FSC Sustainability?

Artaygo is proud to support sustainable supply practices when it procures frames and canvas materials. 

There are ten principles that any forest operation must adhere to before it can receive FSC forest management certification. These principles cover a broad range of issues, from maintaining high conservation values to community relations and workers’ rights, as well as monitoring the environmental and social impacts of the forest management. FSC stands for the Forest Stewardship Council (https://fsc.org/en). This non-profit organization certifies forestry operations to ensure that forests are managed to preserve biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring the forest sustains economic viability.
