The HCV Resource Network brings together users of the HCV approach

For more than 15 years, identifying, managing and monitoring High Conservation Values (HCV) has been a key step towards achieving certification from major forestry and agricultural commodity standard schemes. 

HCV requirements are also included in the policies of major financial institutions and banks, and in the procurement policies and sustainability committments of global private sector organisations.
