FSC or Forest Management Certification – A new need for Australian businesses

August 29 19:34 2022

It is possible for a company to have an impact on the world. It is also possible for companies to have an effect on the world in a positive way.

When a company is FSC certified, it has an impact on the world in a positive way, because they are able to preserve biological diversity while also benefiting the lives of the local people and workers who live around the forest and ensuring that the forest is economically viable.


A forest is an ecosystem where trees grow in clusters and are interconnected by air spaces. To sustain the health of a forest, we must respect its boundaries, structure and species.

FSC certification is a globally recognized sustainability standard that ensures forest management practices and products are socially, economically and environmentally beneficial. FSC certification also promotes the sustainable use of forest products. Consequently, more Australian businesses have adopted FSC certification in response to demand for the standard.

FSC was initially designed to support the responsible management of forest resources in an effort to avoid social, economic and environmental degradation caused by deforestation. Consequently, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adopted it as a global standard. Since then, FSC has gained traction in Australia as more businesses seek to reduce environmental impact while increasing profitability. As such, there is an increased need for awareness regarding the FSC standard among businesses seeking to implement it. To do so, stakeholders should educate themselves on the sustainable practices of FSC-certified forests through online resources such as seminars, videos and books and seek advice from experts. For example, The Good Forest presents numerous benefits of adopting an FSC-certified forest.

Organisations dealing with forests can be FSC certified, and this Certification is obtained after an audit by an accredited independent body and is based on three criteria: environmental, societal and economic respect.

Businesses dealing with the following items can be FSC certified:

–       Wood and timber

–       Paper and pulp

–       Textile

–       Bamboo

–       Corks

–       Buildings

The FSC forest management certification is a must for natural resource companies that wish to be successful in Australia.


With more than 80% of the total forest area in Australia designated as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, it is becoming essential for companies to have a team on hand to help them with the process of preparing for the final audit. As being FSC certified are becoming more mandated for Australian companies, they consider getting FSC certified at a rising rate, and to promote some insights and tips on how to set up a forest management system and prepare for that final audit, Melbourne-based consultancy, PrimaPerfect has started regular training, webinars and workshops to prepare those who want to make a difference.
