Forest certification

Forests bring lasting benefits to both local communities and society as a whole, encouraging local residents to become stewards of these precious resources for the future.

Our forest operations aim to maintain or enhance the diverse range of ecological functions, biodiversity, and ecosystem services that forests provide while ensuring economic benefits and social well-being. We prioritize long-term economic sustainability that meets present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

All our forests in Romania are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC -C131270). We believe FSC is currently the most credible global forest management certification available, as it covers far more than just harvesting practices. FSC certification also includes requirements for biodiversity protection, such as identifying and setting aside critical high conservation value forests, it supports community rights and takes action to develop a fair and safe environment for those working in the forest.

Ingka Investment Management proudly holds the SA-FM/COC-005243 forest management certificate, a testament to our responsible forest stewardship that proves our firm commitment to environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically viable forest management practices.

What does it mean to be forest management certified?

Forest management certification is a voluntary and rigorous evaluation process overseen by independent experts. Thorough audits, including field inspections are conducted to guarantee adherence to responsible forest management principles. The certification is granted for a renewable five-year period, with ongoing annual monitoring to ensure sustained compliance.

Beyond our commitment to forest certification, we actively welcome assessments of our practices, maintaining a commitment to transparency and accountability in our pursuit of responsible and sustainable forest management.

Working standards

The forest management certification process also entails ongoing communication with key stakeholders, including local communities, authorities, and businesses. This ensures that stakeholders have the opportunity to provide recommendations and opinions on how the company conducts its forest management at any point in time.
