Certification benefits include flexibility, wider markets and potentially a premium price for their timber into the future.

The Group Certification Scheme is audited annually by an independently body, an Accreditation Body (CB). They will audit the forests management unit and the systems in place to manage the group. The certification label will ensure verification to the end user that the forest is managed sustainably, balancing environmental, social and economical principles of sustainable forest management.
