Renewal of Forest Certification in São Miguel

The renewed certification of the Forest Perimeter and Regional Forests on the island of São Miguel is granted by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)®, a global non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting responsible forest management around the world.

This revalidation of the certification reflects the commitment of the Government of the Azores to promote a forestry policy that guarantees not only the economic utilisation of forests and technical knowledge, but also appropriate land-use planning, the preservation of natural values and the well-being of communities that are directly or indirectly linked to the forest.
