Certified sustainable

Certified sustainable

Forestry Corporation's management of state forests is certified to Australian Standard for Sustainable Forest Management under the Responsible Wood Certification System. This standard has been recognised through the international Programme for Endorsement of Certification Scheme (PEFC), which guarantees that timber has been grown and harvested from a sustainable forest. Worldwide certification programs aim to prevent unregulated or illegally logged forest timber entering international markets by setting criteria that forest management must meet.
