Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification
An environmental certification promoting and certifying sustainable forest management. A pioneer in forest certification, the PEFC is the foremost Forest Certification system in terms of certified forest areas and the number one source of certified wood in the world.
PEFC certification is based on a governance process involving all the stakeholders concerned with the sustainable management of forests: producers, processors and users.
When consumers see the PEFC mark on wooden or wood-based products, they are guaranteed that the product they are buying comes from responsible sources and through their purchase they are supporting the sustainable management of forests.
