FSC Friday Ideas for Businesses
FSC Friday is a great opportunity for raising awareness of your commitment to sourcing timber and timber products from responsible sources and the benefits of FSC certification!
Please note that we may be unable to support FSC Friday activities by businesses that do not hold a valid FSC certificate or licence.
Please take a look at the ideas below for some FSC Friday inspiration...
FSC Staff Awareness Day
Hold an internal staff awareness raising activity. Organise a semeinar or a short talk about what the FSC certificate means for your business and the purpose of FSC Friday. This could be followed by a quiz. Many companies have held FSC themed coffee breaks over the years with some delicious FSC Friday themed cakes!
Perhaps you could offer discounts to customers on FSC Friday – we could promote this on our website and through social media. Contact us for more information!
FSC Friday can be used to increase understanding of FSC amongst business customers, with distribution of FSC factsheets or flyers, seminars or product promotions. Visit our resources page for more information on the materials available.
Businesses can hold open days, inviting customers or local school groups to visit their site and learn about FSC certification.
Promotion of FSC Friday
Businesses can promote FSC Friday on their website, in newsletters and using social media. Perhaps you could mention FSC Friday in any FSC media work and time stories and new product launches or promotions for the end of September.
