Rio Forest Certification Declaration

Almost 20 years ago, the world's governments failed to protect our forests. Their failure has been our challenge, and millions of people around the world have been working harder to save the world's green lung.

The Rio Forest Certification Declaration is based on the idea that a common set of principles is needed, a set of principles that provides guidance to all of us about what is needed to better promote forest certification and its continuous growth to advance sustainable forest management.
