PEFC Sustainable forest management certification
Forest management is a long-term process, the quality and good practice of which can only be assessed decades later; but the PEFC Sustainable forest management certification can prove your responsible management practices and the quality of services provided today.
What is the PEFC Sustainable forest management certification?
Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international forest certification scheme that promotes sustainable, environmentally friendly, economically sound, and socially responsible forest management.
Forest certification verifies the sustainable management and use of forests. A product with the PEFC-certified material mark and/or label reassures operators and consumers that the raw materials used in the production of the product are sourced from sustainably managed forests. The global goal of forest certification is to reduce the uncontrolled use of forests in third world countries.
PEFC certifications are selected by both organizations and owners of small forest areas, and the certification process is carried out throughout the entire forest product supply chain. This certification is carried out throughout the forest product supply chain and helps producers to market their products, as more and more companies are implementing responsible timber procurement policies. It confirms the observance of good forestry practices in the forest, as well as the harvesting of timber and other forest products by observing the highest ecological, social, and ethical standards.
Why certify according to the standards of the PEFC Sustainable forest management certification?
An independent PEFC Sustainable forest management certification, carried out in accordance with the guidelines of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), confirms that the forest is managed in accordance with an internationally recognized standard. Obtaining the certification confirms your sustainable operation and competitiveness in the field of forest management.
