Added Value of FSC Certification in Forest Plantation Landscapes of South America

Posted on

WWF has been an active participant and avid promoter of Sustainable Forest Management around the world and believes the best expression and assurance of quality and credibility available is the forest management certification provided by compliance with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standard. Implementation of FSC’s standard requires a broad range of industry best management practices (BMPs), which create benefits and added value over operations without certification or even other certification systems. These BMPs go beyond the core business of the companies and in an effect beyond what is forest management, to include many other aspects of a company´s role in a landscape, such as conflict resolution, labor practices, corporate social and environmental responsibility and cultural sensitivity.
WWF seeks to undertake a collaborative effort to increase the visibility of the benefits of FSC certification in Brazil, Chile and Uruguay. In order to do so, WWF issues this call for consultants to analyze the results of FSC forest management certification and  develop synthetic communication messages on the added value generated through certification with the aim engage with a broad range of stakeholders and strengthening the demand and the quality of certification.
