The FSC Leadership Awards recognize the excellence, innovation and creativity of FSC-certified companies in North America.  

The awards honor FSC certificate holders and nonprofit partner organizations who are based in the US or Canada and are committed to creating a marketplace that promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically prosperous management of the world's forests. The awards recognize individuals, companies and "uncommon partnerships" between organizations. 

FSC celebrated the recipients at the annual FSC Awards Ceremony in New Orleans, during Greenbuild 2014. The ceremony was co-hosted with WWF and the Green Sports Alliance and featured Rita LeBlanc, owner of the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans.
