Purchasers of timber are increasingly interested in where the product they buy comes from, and how it has been produced.
This relates to the raw material and the end-of-line products. Purchasing decisions are based on many criteria including fitness for purpose, price, delivery capacity, location, as well as the forestry management practices employed in the growing and harvesting of the trees from which the wood products are sourced.
Forestry Standards & Schemes
SAI Global’s expert auditors and accredited certification processes provide Forestry Managers with the ability to declare that their forests meet recognised standards of best practice. Mill managers with a Chain of custody in place may make claims about their products as coming from certified, recycled, or responsible sources.
