ECOSOC grants special consultative status to FSC AC

The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations has granted the Forest Stewardship Council AC with Special consultative status.

This status enables FSC AC to actively engage with ECOSOC and its subsidiary bodies, as well as with the United Nations Secretariat, programmes, funds and agencies in a number of ways. It also enables FSC to access a number of meetings, including the regional UN Regional Economic Commissions, UNFF, and others.

ECOSOC is the United Nations platform on economic and social issues. It focuses on international economic, social, cultural, educational, health, and related matters and may make recommendations with respect to any such matters to the General Assembly to the Members of the United Nations, and to the specialized agencies concerned.
