why sustainability is important
Softwood forests are a renewable resource, and it’s a part of our job to make certain that they always are.
With over 3 million square kilometers, Canada has the third largest forested area in the world after Russia and Brazil. Many countries from around the world use Canadian wood in the construction of their products, homes and buildings. This global demand makes it important that the forests of Canada are responsibly maintained and managed by all companies involved in the forestry industry business.
A Renewable & Responsible Way for Doing Business
Probyn Export is a member with the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and the Canadian chapter of the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification™ (PEFC™). Both are independent, global organizations that adhere to a strict set of member guidelines that promote the responsible use and management of our forests and also for social practices.
Members of these two organizations want to see the forests of Canada harvested responsibly and with the best interests of the environment, local people and wildlife. As well, a disciplined, long-term economic view is used so that forests that are harvested can be replanted. This ensures a constant, ever-available supply of timber for the forestry industry.
