leafOur Vision Statement

Members of the GreenLink Forest Stewards Group fully recognize and take seriously our responsibilities as stewards of the natural resources that are under our care. By managing our forests in a healthy and productive manner, we strive to produce sustainable products and maintain natural ecological functions for the benefit of our families, organizations, local communities and the global society as a whole.

leafOur Group Principles

In an effort to promote responsible forest management around the world the Forest Stewardship Council developed principles that when followed, could contribute to a more sustainable forestland base throughout the world and lead to more sustainable communities that depend on the forests for their economic and spiritual well-being. GreenLink Forest Stewards recognizes that we live in an interdependent world where forest products are managed and traded on a global basis. By following the principles set forth by the Forest Stewardship Council™, it is our hope that our members can assist in marketing forest products to the world that are assured to come from lands that are managed to be economically, biologically and socially sustainable.
