Certificates for Forest & Wood Products

Australia has its own Forestry Standard Scheme (AFCS), owned and managed by Australian Forestry Standard Limited (AFS Ltd). AFS is a not-for-profit public company. The AFCS is built on two Australian Standards® – AS 4708 and AS 4707.

The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is the world’s leading forest certification scheme that is designed to promote sustainable forest management.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) provides “the world’s most rigorous” certification scheme for forests and has a separate Australian chapter.

At Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA), you can find wood products that have been certified according to the principles of ISO 14024, the best global practices for eco-labeling.
