The PEFC programme, short for “Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification”, is the world's largest label for sustainable forest management. PEFC works to protect and conserve forests by recognising existing sustainable forest management systems. Companies in the supply chain can prove that their PEFC certified products contribute to this objective through a so-called "Chain of Custody certificate". Do you also want to demonstrate to your customers that you are committed to support a sustainable forest management? Then you should opt for PEFC certification.
With a PEFC certificate, your company becomes part of the chain of custody. All companies along the entire supply chain from the forest to the consumer ensure the traceability of PEFC certified products. That way, you can guarantee to your clients that your certified wood and paper products come from sustainably managed forests.
A growing number of companies in the supply chain are PEFC certified. These are companies all along the chain from a wide range of sectors, including the wood and paper processing industry, importers, wholesalers, retailers, the construction sector and the graphic arts industry.
There are three types of PEFC certification to choose from: group certification, individual certification and multi-site certification. Many companies are eligible for our group certification as they meet the relevant eligibility criteria. Wondering which form of certification best suits your company?
The Forest Stewardship Council® label is one of the best-known international sustainability labels for responsible forest management. FSC is widely recognised and is therefore often required by clients as a compulsory prerequisite. FSC is also recognised by international systems such as BREEAM and LEED. In addition, an FSC certificate contributes to meeting the requirements of the European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR).
