FSC has decided to launch a third public consultation to further develop and finalise the FSC Policy on Conversion. This 60-day consultation is now open and available through the FSC consultation platform until 6 November 2020. Please participate!
The previous consultation on the second draft of FSC-POL-01-007 V1-0 D2-0 FSC Policy on Conversion ended in February 2020. The chamber-balanced working group on this policy then proposed several options to change the conversion cut-off rule and address other concerns. FSC has now decided to launch a third public consultation to obtain feedback from their members and stakeholders on these proposed options. The results of this third consultation will be used to finalise the FSC Policy on Conversion.
To support FSC membership and stakeholder participation in the consultation process and to prepare for the conversion discussion at the FSC General Assembly (GA) 2021, FSC has developed a green paper on conversion and planned research and engagement activities related to conversion prior to the GA 2021, including conversion data gathering, case studies and conversion dialogues and more. The paper is available for download here.
