Group Certification

This group makes certification – which had been a financial impediment for many companies – affordable for the first time. Those companies currently enrolled are saving $1,500-$2,000 per year, when compared to the cost of holding an individual certificate.

The qualifications for enrollment in the program are simple; you need to be a member of PINE and you must have no more than $5 million in wood product sales. $1,695/year

RACG Group FSC Certification is provided by Rainforest Alliance

Even after my membership cost, I was able to put $500 in my pocket with the group FSC certification that PINE offers.
