Tembec has been awarded the FSC certification for its forest resource management practices in Forest Management Units 85-51 and 85-62 in the La Sarre sector of Abitibi-Tmiscamingue. This is the first public forest in Quebec to be awarded certification under the Forest Stewardship Council standards for Canadian boreal forests.
"The only way Tembec could get this FSC certification was by demonstrating strong performance in meeting the standards for environmental protection, the recognition of Indigenous People’s rights, and social responsibility," outlined president and CEO of the Forest Stewardship Council Canada, Antony Marcil. "Tembec did just that in Forest Management Units 85-51 and 85-62."
