A Sustainable Forest Management System: Guidance Document
This Standard specifies the characteristics of a sustainable forest management
system intended to fulfil the goals of sustainable forest management as
defined by the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers (CCFM). The goal set by
the CCFM is to maintain and enhance the long-term health of forest ecosystems,
while providing environmental, economic, social, and cultural opportunities for
the benefit of both present and future generations (see Figure 1).
