November 01, 2022

Melissa & Doug has been named one of the winners of the 2022 FSC® Leadership Awards by the Forest Stewardship Council®!

The annual FSC Leadership Awards recognize top certified companies, projects, trademark license holders, nonprofits, and individuals that exhibit “uncommon excellence” in the use of FSC-certified products and commitment to responsible forestry.

Melissa & Doug was recognized “for the widespread and growing use of FSC-certified materials in its paper products and iconic wooden toys as well as for marketing FSC extensively in its consumer engagement.”

Other honorees include The Nature Conservancy, HP Inc., Meta, REI, and the World Wildlife Fund U.S. (WWF-US), among others.

“It’s so inspiring to see this high level of commitment across such a diverse set of people and organizations,” said Derik Frederiksen, President of FSC US. “These award winners give us hope in the face of big challenges like climate change and show that it’s possible to promote resilient forests even as we all use forest products every day.”

"We are honored to be named an FSC Leadership Award Winner and recognized for our commitment to supporting responsible forest management," said Bridgette Miller, Chief Marketing & Sustainability Officer at Melissa & Doug. "We envision a world where children have access to both thriving forests and high-quality wooden toys."
