It is difficult to find products or services in the market that are not defined as sustainable. But what makes a product or a service really sustainable? A good reference standard and a serious and independent system of control (audit). Lucio Brotto (Etifor Srl) and Davide Pettenella (University of Padova) as editors, and the rest of the contributing authors, were able to produce this new book that addresses the subject giving a complete and update picture of the standards and certification systems implemented in the forestry sector. Beginning with a market and policy analysis, the book fosters a deeper understanding of standards, methodologies and auditing techniques. The certification process is described within the general framework of the market-based tools available in the forestry sector. The book shows how a mutual learning process between established forest certification processes and innovative markets is needed. It addresses key topics such as High Conservation Value (HCV) approaches, the role of independent certification versus due diligence process, the new development connected to environmental services certification. Numerous case studies are included from a wide range of contexts, including both temperate and tropical forests in developed and developing countries. This publication is an effective way to think about the state-of-the-art of Forest Management Auditing and help new professionals through the many and complex options in this area.
