Protecting FSC’s reputation – identifying mechanisms to address the involvement in unacceptable and controversial activities by organizations associated to FSC
This workshop aims to define the scope of controversial activities to be addressed, the tools and mechanisms to be applied and in which cases, and to identify the need for further tools or mechanisms to address any gaps. We will examine the purpose, scope and application of the FSC Policy for Association (PfA), the use of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, and the utility of the Trademark License Agreement to address controversial activities.
FSC will present the most recent work and developments in the portfolio of tools and mechanisms for addressing controversial activities. These developments provide new mechanisms which can be used to address risks associated with controversial activities that fall outside the scope of the PfA. During the workshop QAU would like to assess whether these recent developments – coupled with the existing re-vised portfolio of rules – address satisfactorily and sufficiently the risks for FSC’s reputation of associating with organizations involved in controversial activities.
