Welcome to FORCERT

lau-yard-stacking-2FORCERTFORCERT is a Papua New Guinean based, not for profit company that promotes sustainable forest management through providing certification and marketing services of forests and products for local small-scale producers and timber yards.

FORCERT uses Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification as a management, marketing and networking tool. It links community forest enterprises to central timber yards, and combines the output of these yards to service overseas markets.

FORCERT believes in a fair and transparent independently certified forest product trade that recognises the important role of local landowners and ensures the different values of their forests are appreciated and maintained.
