The Rise and Evolution of Forest Certification

The Rise and Evolution of Forest Certification

(p.70) Chapter Four The Rise and Evolution of Forest Certification
Constructing Private Governance

Graeme Auld

Yale University Press

This chapter traces the origins of certification programs for responsible forest management practices, with particular reference to the impact of intergovernmental processes on forests and the role played by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO). It also examines the support provided by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), and how the unique structure of the FSC's governance and its attention to social and environmental issues influenced the forest sector. The chapter concludes by explaining why producers created programs as substitutes and why the entry of similar initiatives has so far been unsuccessful.
