A recent research from the University of Wageningen, Netherlands, has analyzed 31 articles about environmental impacts of the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) in boreal, temperate and tropical forests. The result showed that the actions of the Forest Stewardship Council contributed, mainly, to biodiversity preservation.
Although the impact has been bigger for fauna, flora and ecosystems have also been benefited by the FSC®-certified regions which prevented deforestation of tropical forests. In addition, there was a 31% reduction in atmospheric pollution at these sites between 2000 and 2008.
