SGEC/PEFC Japan provides regular education program for certification body auditors who undertake audits for SGEC/PEFC FM and COC certifications. Last week, as a part of the education programs, the participants made an inspection visit to a forest managed by Nippon Paper Lumber Co., Ltd. located at the foot of Mt. Fuji and Mt. Fuji World Asset Center located in Fujinomiya-city, Shizuoka Prefecture.
At the forest, an explanation was given by a representative form Nippon Paper Lumber Co., Ltd. on the outline of the sustainable management conducted by the company. At the Mt. Fuji World Asset Center, there was an explanation from a representative of Kagemaya Lumber Co., Ltd., who greatly contributed as the project manager to the achievement of SGEC/PEFC project certification applied to the center’s wooden lattice monument sourced from the above-mentioned forest, on the background of seeking the certification and the technical and aesthetic aspects related to the monument.
The local companies and organisations engaged in forestry and lumber industries in Fuji District are strengthening initiatives for promoting the locally made Japanese cypress as “Fuji Hinoku Made” brand in and outside of Japan.
SGEC/PEFC is committed to promote SGEC/PEFC project certification to be applied to the construction of wooden high-rise buildings, as a tool of achieving SDGs which is increasingly drawing attention of the society domestically and internationally.
