Economically viable

Economically viable forest management means that forest operations are structured and managed so as to be sufficiently profitable, without generating financial profit at the expense of the forest resource, the ecosystem, or affected communities.

Supporting value chains

Responsibly managed forest is a renewable source of forest-based materials. These materials are supporting green value chains such as furniture, paper, pellets, cork, etc.

Incentivizing long-term investments

Responsible forest management requires long-term forest management plans (usually 10-15 years) which in turn enables long-term investments.


Securing stable income

Responsibly managing a forest means that the forests are growing and improving, which consequently secures income from forestry activities.
