Dasos is one of the largest private sector forest owners in Lithuania. In March 2020, all forests managed by Dasos were certified within Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) standard. Dasos is committed to sustainable forest management and climate smart forestry. The demand for FSC wood is growing, especially in the pulp and paper industry but also in the mechanical wood processing.
Only around 15 % of the Lithuanian privately-owned forests have been certified within FSC. So far, it has been predominantly larger forest owners (with hundreds or thousands hectares of forest land) that have been successful in complying with FSC – amongst small-scale forest owners FSC certification is very rare in Lithuania.
