New Zealand low risk for Controlled Wood

July 22, 2014

The Global Forest Registry has been updated to include a new national Controlled Wood risk assessment for New Zealand.

Endorsed by FSC-International Center in July, the assessment concludes that all of New Zealands forests are low risk for FSC Controlled Wood. Buyers of Controlled Wood may now source wood from New Zealand without conducting further risk evaluations.

All five risk categories of the FSC Controlled Wood Standard are assessed as low risk.
