Forest management operations are conducted to maintain a sustainable balance between the ecological, social, and economic good and services over a 200-year planning horizon. This work is completed through third party audited planning and work processes or Certification, through self-imposed Environmental Management Systems (EMS), and through a wide range of government enforced regulation and legislation. There can be little doubt of the success of these systems to protect economic, social and environmental outcomes, though individuals still have the right to dispute these outcomes publicly. This course provides an overview of Certification, EMS and Legislation and Regulation in use today.
