It has been widely recognized that forest certification systems are an effective means in realizing “sustainable forest management (SFM).” Moreover, as forests sequestrate green house gas, it has become important that forests be properly evaluated and certified in this regard. In response, Sustainable Green Ecosystem Council (SGEC) is established to be an appropriate certification scheme in the context of Japanese forestry. SGEC is to be popularized in order to promote SFM, encourage cyclical use of forest resources, raise forest management level, contribute to global warming prevention efforts, and support people’s life in both country and urban settings.
