Managing Special Values
For many sustainability standards there is a requirement to formally manage special values (also known as High Conservation Values or HCV) like rare species, ecosystems, Ecosystem services like water, Erosion and fire control and Cultural Values.
Managing special values and HCV is not a simply defined task. It may encompass a range of issues affecting or affected by an operation that need to be managed to meet sustainability standards.
