Welcome to EUSTAFOR !
We represent commercially oriented, state-owned forest companies, enterprises and agencies which have sustainable forest management and wood production as their major concerns.
Our members represent one third of the EU forest area, including large, protected areas. Our members are certified by FSC and/or PEFC, meaning that annual evaluations are made in order to verify that criteria such as biodiversity, and social and cultural values are met through their forest management. Our member organizations employ approximately 100 000 people.
Our association supports and strengthens state forest organizations in Europe with a view to maintaining and enhancing their economic viability as well as their social and cultural benefits, and also their ecologically responsible and sustainable forest management.
Our offices are located in the historical European Forestry House in Brussels, Belgium, just across from the European Parliament.
We hope you will enjoy our site.
