Help ban illegal logging
‘Ask for a CoC certificate’
By the early 90s the international community focused its efforts to establish the necessary standards on forest management, setting the rules for sustainable development, a key issue for the forestry sector. In 1995, the United Nations imposed a series of measures, introducing the much needed regulatory framework and the adopted policies within the industry. As an outcome, in only a 18 years’ time, 292 million hectares have been certified and officially approved for further logging worldwide, 30% of which lie in Europe. These concessions are often referred to as “legal forests”. This kind of certification has rendered a solid framework, which in turn supports additional measures to eliminate uncontrolled logging. Next step of course is to characterize any “uncontrolled” logging as “illegal”, literally. Up to date, all legal harvests and related timber volumes logged point to the issuance of interim contracts and certificates of origin, known as Chain of Custody Certificates (CoC).
