Forests are critical for sustainable development providing a wealth of goods and services that are essential for a greener economy. Forest certification is crucial in providing evidence of sustainable forest management.
PEFC expands forest certification globally through its unique bottom-up approach to certification and is the certification system of choice for family and community-owned forests. The UK Woodland Assurance Standard (UKWAS) is the national forest certification standard for the UK.
Chain of Custody is the process of handling information on the origin of forest-based products.
This allows organisations to make accurate and verifiable claims on the content of sustainably certified material and proves that each step of the supply chain from the forest to the end user has been monitored closely through independent auditing.
The PEFC logo and label on a product communicates to customers that the wood or fibre has been responsibly sourced.
Keep up to date with the latest activity of PEFC via our regular news updates and newsletters. You can also access a huge range of publications and case studies dedicated to showing how PEFC–certified products can add value to you and your organisation.
You can also find out where to come and meet PEFC in person at various trade shows and events across the UK and internationally.
