TEMISCAMING, QUE – Tembec, an integrated forest products company, announced that it received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for its forestry practices over a 711,020-hectare public forest in Senneterre, in Abitibi-East, Quebec.
“Achieving FSC certification is the culmination of months of hard work and represents a well-deserved recognition of the efforts of our Senneterre team,” said Dennis Rounsville, executive vice president and president of Tembec’s Forest Products Group. “In addition to this significant certification achievement, the company has invested more than $4.5 million since 2003 for the development and improvement of our Senneterre operations. Faced with a profound risk of a 50% cut in fiber supply for that mill, Tembec intends to stand firm to correct this inequity, to protect our investment and maintain jobs in the region.”
