Building community forestry, tree by log
With growing awareness of social and sustainability issues in natural resource sectors, consumers are demanding greater transparency in the supply chain. Where did this fish come from? Is this coffee fair trade? Is this clothing sweatshop-free? Was this wood harvested sustainably?
Yet third-party certification can be prohibitively expensive for small-scale harvesters and manufacturers that support local communities.
So we offered an alternative for BC’s forestry industry: we hold an FSC® Group Certificate, which businesses join to share certification costs. The certification adds value to locally harvested and manufactured forest products at an affordable price.
Bringing FSC® products to the marketplace builds consumer awareness and demand for responsibly managed and harvested forest products – changing forestry for the better.
