Sustainability:
What is Forest Certification – and Why Is It Important?

Forests are our planet’s best defense against climate change. When managed in a responsible way, forests preserve wildlife habitat including endangered species and they protect water sources such as streams, rivers and lakes from erosion and chemical run-off

Today forests are under threat and disappearing at an alarming rate, and deforestation accounts for 16% of all greenhouse gas emissions which is more than the total annual global transport sector emissions.

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is a global not-for-profit organisation founded in 1993 by environmentalists, social interest groups, responsible retailers and leading forest companies to develop standards that set what is a responsibly managed forest.

FSC® set higher standards than any other timber certification scheme and these are the foundation of FSC® certification.

These standards ensure that environmental, social and economic needs are balanced, and that long-term forest management plans are implemented.

The FSC® standard has transformed forest management globally. Currently, over 190 million hectares of forest are FSC® certified, in over 82 countries worldwide, equivalent to 16% of the total forest area used for timber production globally.

In New Zealand, 70% of the forest plantations are managed under the FSC® principles.

Companies that buy timber-based products have played a significant role in increasing the area of forest being sustainably managed by demanding credible certification.

FSC® works to take care of our forests and those who rely on them: by protecting plant and animal species, Indigenous Peoples rights, forest workers’ safety, and much more. By purchasing FSC® products, corporates and consumers can make a difference for future generations.

Let’s pass down forests to our children and grandchildren. When you buy products with the FSC® logo you can do your part to preserve a legacy for future generations.

“Companies like Abodo are FSC’s “forest heroes”: they make a real difference in increasing the amount of well managed forest in New Zealand and around the world by committing to procure FSC® certified products wherever they can” – Cyrielle Durand, FSC® New Zealand Representative
