About FSC®

Certification is becoming increasingly relevant in the New Zealand forestry scene.

Throughout the world, companies and governments are coming under increasing pressure to adopt measures to verify that products have been produced by methods that are environmentally acceptable.

The FSC® certification system is currently one of the most established and recognised in the world and the only one currently used in New Zealand.  Certification ensures that products come from well-managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

FSC® certification provides proof that forest products come from responsibly managed forests.  

Incorporating the FSC® Principles and Criteria in the management plans for participating forest owners is relatively easy within the Environmental Management System. We apply the FSC® chain of custody rules when harvesting FSC® certified forests and actively participate in developing national FSC® standards for plantation forestry.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) provides certification for forestry management companies.  They also provide ‘chain of custody’ certification for businesses that add value to forestry products.
