Forest-based industries have a significant role in promoting sustainable development. Wellmanaged forests play an essential part in natural carbon and water cycles, as well as preserving and enhancing biodiversity.

How does forest certification work?
Forest certification systems cover forest product chains from the forest to end use.
They consist of the following three processes and elements:
1. Forest management certification
A process of verifying the compliance of forest management practices against standards and criteria for sustainable forest management through independent third party assessments.
2. Chain of Custody (CoC) certification
Independent third party verification of the quality of the origin of wood tracing system used to monitor and report volumes of certified wood, in relation to the criteria of a CoC standard. Certified CoC systems provide mechanisms of traceability, an information link between the wood raw material included in the product and its origin. The CoC verifies that wood originates from certified forests, that it is legal and doesn’t come from controversial sources. Each participant along the supply chain must be CoC certified to ensure complete traceability.
3. Usage of logos and labels
A tool to communicate the certification status of logs, pulp, paper, sawn timber and other woodbased products.
