”PEFC, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, is a leading global alliance of national forest certification systems. As an international
non-profit, non-governmental organization, we are dedicated to promoting
sustainable forest management through independent third-party certification.

What is PEFC

We work throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that forest-based products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards.

Facts and figures

With over 315 million hectares of PEFC-certified forest, we are the largest forest certification system in the world. To this must be added more than 20,000 companies that have obtained PEFC chain of custody certification, demonstrating their commitment to responsible sourcing of certified products.”
