The forest management standard has been significantly revised, over a 2 year period, to increase focus on biodiversity protection and stakeholder engagement.


Planet Ark is optimistic that the new standard will improve the quality of forest management.

Planet Ark is committed to supporting forest management certification as a key method of behaviour change in the pursuit of a more sustainable planet.
