SSC Forestry is able to offer all of the requirements for successful certified forestry, including forest certification auditing, training and consulting support, to ensure that forestry is carried out in an environmentally and socially appropriate way.

Forest certification

We have extensive experience in forest management, chain of custody and group certification. Our customers include the majority of the Swedish forest companies (Bergvik, Holmen, SCA etc), one of the worlds largest FSC–certified groups (Skogssällskapet), The National Property Board (SFV) and The Swedish Church. Internationally, our customers include some of the major Latin American and Southern African forestry companies as well as for example CDC (The UK overseas investment agency) and The IFC/World Bank Group.

Based on certification as a tool for ensuring sustainability, SSC Forestry is rapidly expanding into different aspects of natural resource management related to forestry.

In cooperation with Sida (The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency), SSC Forestry has trained over 350 forest managers from more than 60 countries in forest certification, and based on this network has developed long–term relationships with clients around the world. In co–operation with our long-term partners Woodmark/Soil Association and Det Norske Veritas (DNV), we are able to offer certification services for FSC, PEFC and ISO.
