Papua achieves its first international forest management certificate
PRESS RELEASE – Jakarta, 10 November 2015
Amid global concerns over the spread of forest fires in Indonesia, mostly on land cleared for cultivation, the forest sector itself is making progress with the implementation of best management practices in forest protection and conservation.
Sustainable forest management in Indonesia reached a new milestone in August when PT Bintuni Utama Murni Wood Industries (PT BUMWI) achieved its Forest Stewardship Council certificate (FSC®), the first forest concession in Papua to do so. FSC® certified forest management is based on a set of principles and associated criteria that ensure that forests are managed to meet the social, economic, ecological, cultural and spiritual needs of present and future generations.
