Patrick coordinates certification audits and manages a diverse portfolio of certified organisations, covering a broad range of sustainable products and services.
With a background in forest management, I learned to understand the importance of sustainable forest products to our world, communities, and individual lives. I was incredibly happy to take the opportunity to help ensure that forests are protected, workers have fair conditions, and consumers have access to sustainably certified end products.
