One thought on “Woolworths Slammed For Using Sustainable Forests Logo

  1. FSC NAME SHOULD NOT BE USED IN RELATION TO NON-FSC PRODUCTS

    The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC Australia) has requested that Woolworths Limited and their Indonesian supplier APP immediately clarify claims implying an FSC association with paper products that are not FSC certified.

    Auditing of a site does not and should not mean that a certificate will be issued. FSC standards specifically prohibit applicants for certification making such claims.

    FSC Australia has raised the matter with Accreditation Services International (ASI) and asked that the matter be investigated and action taken if a company has broken the rules.

    The words Forest Stewardship Council, the initials FSC and the FSC logo are all subject to international trademarks and cannot be used without authorisation.

    In particular, FSC trademarks must not be used in a way that could mislead consumers into believing that certain products are FSC certified when they are not.
