Ekoskog is a non-profit member association, a NGO, with the aim to create a certification of clear-cut free, continuous cover forestry and labelling of products from these certified forests. The interest in new, more gentle forestry methods and forestry without clear cuts is increasing, both from landowners, service producers in the tourism industry, authorities and consumers. A labelling system for products from continuous cover forestry gives consumers the opportunity to make a more sustainable choice, and landowners and producers will strengthen the pricing for their products.
Our goal is sustainable forestry, based on modern ecological research, to safeguard and increase biodiversity, promote service production, increase processing of high quality wood and long-term profitability, and strengthen the forest landscape's role as a carbon store and carbon sink. The forestry methods need to be ecosystem-based, i.e. to build on the natural conditions for the site, including naturally occurring tree species. The certification of these forest raw materials will – to a large extent – be based on the new possibilities of digitalisation and contributes to modern, diversified and sustainable forestry. Our work has been supported by the Swedish Institute, the European Climate Foundation anf the Swedish Postcode foundation.
