Pathfinder instruments

Making certification more accessible

The PathFinder is a series of instruments to support and empower multi-stakeholder working groups in developing forest certification standards. The aim is to bring together the expertise of those working in this field and create a set of practical guidelines.
The tool describes the institutional requirements for forest certification, how certification and chain of custody work, and how to formulate sustainable forest management standards.

who uses this tool?

The tool is intended for national/ regional forest certification setting groups and it is also useful for those working in a multi-stakeholder environment, outside the forestry sector.
