The Logo Usage Toolkit for on-product labelling is applicable to companies that have been certified to Chain of Custody certification against PEFC ST 2002:2010 and are required to use the Second Edition of this Toolkit.
The Toolkit is designed to assist logo users in applying the logo and labels consistently in terms of design and layout, and in line with PEFC’s technical requirements and branding.
The PEFC logo and labels are globally trusted marks, assisting businesses, consumers, forest owners and managers, and other stakeholders in identifying and promoting merchandise and goods from forests that are managed sustainably.
Using the logo and label enables companies and forest owners to:
Demonstrate commitment to sustainable development and corporate social responsibility
Attract environmentally and socially-minded customers and consumers
Help generate demand for products from PEFC-certified forests
Highlight engagement in sustainable forest management
You are only permitted to use the logo and label if you have obtained a logo license. This document and PEFC’s Logo Usage Rules - Requirements (PEFC ST 2001:2008) explain how to remain in accordance with the requirements.
It is of fundamental importance for PEFC to protect its trademark and ensure that the logo and label are used accurately and verifiably, and that any claims associated with it are relevant and non-misleading. The correct use of the logo on products and associated documentation and in any communication is essential in protecting PEFC’s credibility.
