Our commitment to good forest stewardship is built upon the values of our investors, customers, the community and our employees.
We are proud of our independently certified forest management system, which provides the basis for our environmental, social, cultural and economic sustainability.
Forest Management Certification
Our forest management practices are independently accredited to internationally recognised certification standards providing customers, stakeholders, neighbours and other forest visitors with the assurance that our forest assets are managed sustainably with regard to economic, environmental, social and cultural requirements.
For more information about our Responsible Wood certification, see a copy of our Statement of Certification. Summaries of audit reports related to our current certification period can be found here:
