PEFC UK is partnering with EDGE London to promote the use of responsibly sourced wood products at every stage of a building project.
Architects, designers and other construction professionals specifying materials for construction projects, are increasingly turning to timber as a key element of the building design. Specifiers and buyers choosing PEFC-certified wood products can be assured that they have been sourced responsibly, with the long-term future of healthy forests in mind.
PEFC and EDGE also share a commitment to a strong circular economy – crucial if we are to meet 2050 net zero carbon targets. While timber is a naturally circular product that can easily be recycled and reused, it’s important that buyers choose timber products made from materials that have been sourced from forests that meet internationally recognised standards of legality and sustainability, certified by a global forestry certification programme such as PEFC.
