Forestry is undergoing constant development. The requirements are changing. New knowledge is being added. Forest stewardship must therefore take a long-term perspective and follow the changing requirements in the world at large.
Forests have come into the public eye. They must continue to supply raw material to industry and generate export revenue and prosperity. They are to provide energy and replace oil, which has too great an impact on the climate. The prospects for biodiversity in the forests are improved at the same time.
Holmen’s Guidelines for sustainable forest management contain detailed instructions for the stewardship of Holmen forests. The requirements laid down in PEFC and FSC® certification are built into the guidelines.
