Canadian Forest Products Ltd (Canfor) recognizes the value of carbon management as part of its forest stewardship commitments and the necessity of it to support their forest certification commitments. Canfor's operations are currently certified under the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z809-02 (2003) standard for sustainable forest management (SFM). The requirements of the CSA (2003) standard are defined by the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers (CCFM) SFM criteria and indicators which are globally accepted. The CSA framework therefore maintains a critical link between local, provincial and national level SFM and related initiatives.
Canfor's Sustainable Forest Management Plans (SFMP) for the PG District and Tree Farm Licence (TFL) 30 serve as comprehensive planning documents that meet the required elements for the CSA's SFM certification program and provide a framework for participants to implement SFM following a continual improvement framework for operational planning and performance. While the CCFM criteria were adopted verbatim by the current CSA SFM standard, the elements within the standard have been developed to be locally applicable. The current CSA standard therefore refers to CCFM SFM Criteria, and CSA SFM Elements.
