Forests recertification audit confirms OneFortyOne’s sustainability credentials
OneFortyOne is pleased to confirm that independent forestry auditors have once again found the company and our forests to be fully compliant with the globally endorsed Australian Standard® for Sustainable Forest Management.
OneFortyOne’s Planning & Compliance Manager, Janeth Mackenzie said “Our forests offer vital answers for Australian priorities. Here in the Green Triangle the forest sector provides thousands of direct and indirect jobs, enhances and protects the environment, traps carbon dioxide, and offers recreation and tourism spaces for visitors and locals alike.
With this in mind it’s important to all the team at OneFortyOne that our forests and management practices are recognised as being best practice, and that endorsement is sealed through our international and independent certification.”
The recent forest recertification audit tests how sustainably the company is managing its Green Triangle forests against 9 key standard criterion and 167 individual requirements.
The recertification process considers how OneFortyOne enhances the region’s long term regional social and economic benefits, improves the local environment and protects important historical and cultural sites within the forests.
“We’ve been certified since 2013 and our continued success is absolutely thanks to the hard work and dedication of our employees and contractor partners who work in the forests every day.” said Mrs Mackenzie.
