More than 1,000 forest managers and 19,000 producers globally have demonstrated their commitment to responsible forest management by having their operations certified to FSC standards. In New Zealand, FSC certificates continue to rise in number, and the amount of FSC certified forest steadily expands - there are currently over 140 FSC certified operations, and over 1,000,000 hectares of FSC certified forests.
