OneFortyOne is seeking community feedback on its draft Forest Management Public Summary.
This Public Summary supersedes the OneFortyOne Plantations Forest Management Plan 2016-2021.
Planning and Compliance Manager Janeth Mackenzie said the Public Summary provided a management framework and sets out how OneFortyOne will put its Forest Management Policy commitments into practice in the Green Triangle.
“The primary objective in managing our forest estate is to practice sustainable forestry”, Ms Mackenzie said.
“Our Public Summary describes how we sustain the health and production of the forest and also outlines how we will protect biodiversity, sustainably manage the landscape and share economic, social and cultural benefits within the communities where we operate.”
Ms Mackenzie said public consultation was critical to the review process.
“The intent of this document is to share with the community our plan for managing the forest over the next five years. We publicly release the draft Public Summary to actively seek input into the development of that plan,” she said.
“We truly value feedback, as it helps us to improve how we manage our forests. Our business is intrinsically linked to the Green Triangle region and we look forward to hearing from anyone with an interest in our forest estate and management activities.”
The draft Public Summary can be accessed at www.onefortyone.com/operations/certifications/australia/ and feedback can be provided until May 6.
