Tembec has received group certification of two forest management units, covering approximately 1.4 million hectares near Senneterre, Que., from the Forest Stewardship Council® under the National Boreal Standard.

Tembec, jointly with Resolute Forest Products, received the FSC certification from QMI-SAI Global, a firm of independent auditors, upon completion of an in-depth audit process which showed that the companies' forest management practices comply with stringent FSC forest operations standards governing environmental and social responsibility.

“We are proud of this achievement; it is the result of three years of collaboration with various industry stakeholders," said Dennis Rounsville, Tembec's executive vice-president and president of the Forest Products Group. “The certification of this additional area allows Tembec's Senneterre mill to source 100% of its timber under a timber supply and forest management agreement that is FSC-certified." 

Tembec has 10.8 million hectares of FSC-certified forests and offers the broadest range of FSC-certified products on the market to help its customers meet consumer demand for environmentally responsible solutions.

Tembec manufactures lumber, pulp, paper and specialty cellulose, from operations in Canada and France.
