We are pleased to announce that Accreditation Services International (ASI) has recently accredited PwC for FSC Chain of Custody certification in Canada and the United States. This accomplishment confirms that we meet the highest standards for delivering independent third-party assurance for the FSC program.

Chain of Custody (CoC) certification connects consumers to healthy forests by tracking products from forest to shelf.

By becoming FSC-certified, you are investing in our future by helping to protect wildlife habitat, ensure clean water, and keep forests healthy for generations to come.

Any company involved in the transformation, processing, manufacturing or distribution of a forest-based product must be FSC-certified in order to sell products with an FSC logo and/or with an FSC Claim.

PwC’s latest accreditation is applicable in all North American jurisdictions and expands the scope of our nonfinancial assurance services.  We are the leading providers of sustainability strategy, reporting and assurance services which include:

  • Certification services to various ISO and other internationally recognized management system standards including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14065-3, PEFC, CSA Z809, and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative

  • Climate change strategy, GHG data management system assessments, offset projects, and ISO 14065 accredited verification of GHG emissions reports and project level offsets
