What does PEFC stand for?
PEFC is the world's largest forest certification organisation. It is an international non-governmental and non-profit organisation promoting sustainable forest management around the world. PEFC certified timber products come from sustainably managed forests. Forests with a PEFC certificate are supervised by independent assessors on a regular basis.
»It pays to buy certified wood.«.
Wood and paper products with a PEFC certificate originate from legal and sustainable sources.
In buying products with a PEFC certificate, you:
- support sustainable forest management around the world;
- help protect forests for present and future generations;
- promote the responsible use of wood;
- campaign against illegal logging and clearing of forests.
This is why you should always buy products with a PEFC certificate and protect the environment.
