PNG – Cloudy Bay Sustainable Forestry achieves full FSCTM certification
Cloudy Bay Sustainable Forestry Ltd of Papua New Guinea has achieved certification by the Forest Stewardship CouncilTM (FSCTM) for responsible forest management.
This follows an earlier certification of Controlled Wood under FSC’s Chain of Custody system in October 2011 and sets a new standard for FMA operations.
The certification proves it is possible in PNG to harvest natural forests responsibly and sustainably and supports the Government policy of 100% downstream processing.
Speaking in Port Moresby the company chairman Rob de Fégely said he was extremely proud of the effort that managing director Mike Janssen and his staff had put in to develop the management and monitoring systems to enable the company to comply with the FSC requirements.
He was also appreciative of the support given by The Borneo Initiative who funded the audit.
