OneFortyOne confirms that independent forestry auditors have once again found the company and its 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.”
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.
OneFortyOne is a leader in the Australian forestry industry. It holds long-term harvesting rights to a softwood plantation estate in the Green Triangle region comprising over 80,000 hectares.
