Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC ®)

FSC Certified Since 2010


Forest Stewardship Certification ® (FSC ®) works to promote the responsible management of forests worldwide. Certification creates an incentive for forest owners and managers to follow best social and environmental practices. FSC Certification is currently the highest standard of responsible Forest Management in the world.


The growing demand for FSC certified products indicates that businesses and consumers prefer products from well managed forests. FSC provides a connection between the forest and the end user, forests are certified against a set of strict environmental and social standards, and fibre from certified forests is tracked all the way to the customer.


Both Kalesnikoff Lumber and Kootenay Innovative Wood Ltd. achieved their chain-of-custody Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC ®) in January 2010. We are proud to offer our customers the assurance that our products are certified to today’s highest standards for environmental protection and forest management.
