Focus on forestry

For 22 years, the Soil Association's Woodmark programme has worked across the world to protect forests, wildlife and people, and ensure our precious woodlands are managed responsibly. One of the largest certification schemes in the world, Woodmark offers both FSC and PEFC forestry certification, which allow consumers to identify and purchase timber products from well-managed forests.

These choices in turn support more responsible forest management practices across the world - whether that be protecting wildlife and indigenous rights, and preventing illegal logging in tropical rainforests, or ensuring the survival of diverse flora and fauna in ancient UK woodland.

In this special session of the AGM Kevin Jones, our Head of Forestry, will talk about the scheme and highlight some of the inspirational social and environmental impacts certification has helped achieve in forests and for the communities which depend on them.
