Hans Djurberg who is responsible for sustainability issues in the SCA (Sweden) Forestry business area, will be new Director General of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) International.

The Forest Stewardship Council is an international member organization that works for environmentally adapted, socially responsible and economically viable use of the world’s forests.

During the 25 years since the FSC was founded, they have created a certification system that gathers environmental organizations, industrial representatives, trade unions, indigenous population and other stakeholders for solution-oriented dialogue on forestry. FSC mobilizes market forces and offers people the opportunity to create positive effects in the forest and in society through their purchasing decisions. Currently, 200 million hectares of the world’s forests and more than 35,000 companies are certified by FSC.

"It will be both exciting and challenging to take this role. I am happy to represent both SCA and the forest industry as a whole in these important issues", said Hans Djurberg.

Hans has been on the board of FSC International since 2013 and became Director General on Jan. 1, 2019. The chairmanship extends throughout 2019.
