Forest management certification – Evaluating impacts


Forest management certification is a market-based conservation initiative that aims to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economical viable forestry. Using the work of the FSC as a starting point – which since 1993 has certified 1,300 operations in 80 countries – we will discuss the challenge of assuring consumers that certified products come from forests managed to meet the social, economic and environmental needs of present and future generations.
