CSA reaffirms the Sustainable Forest Management Standard

The CSA forestry standards: CAN/CSA Z809-08 (R2013) and CAN/CSA Z804-08 (R2013) were reaffirmed for a further 3 years on February 28, 2013 following a ballot vote of the CSA Technical Committee on Sustainable Forest Management.

John Dunford, Chairman of the Forest User Group representing the CSA certified forest companies in Canada, noted that “The CSA standard has been applied extensively in Canada in large part due to having the highest requirements for community involvement in forest management. The reaffirmation of the standard will provide stability for companies and the Public Advisory Groups while continuing our commitment to the responsible management of Canada’s public forests.”
