FSC in der Schweiz: Über den Markt zu Nachhaltigkeit oder über Nachhaltigkeit zum Markt? | FSC in Switzerland: Sustainability via the market, or the market via sustainability?

At international level, FSC certification aims at a sustainable management of the forest. However, forest owners in Switzerland do not perceive it in this way, as Swiss forest law already regulates sustainable forestry. Interviews with forest owners and managers of the canton Zurich showed that the main reason for certifying the forest in Switzerland seems to be an economic one, namely to prevent future discrimination against own forest products in the market.
