The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification™ -PEFC™ - is an international non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) through independent third-party certification.

The PEFC certification system

The PEFC-system works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practise in the forest and to ensure that timber and non-timber forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. Thanks to the eco-label, customers and consumers are able to identify products from sustainably managed forests.

​​​

Chain of Custody Certification

In order to provide assurances that wood and wood-based products originate from sustainably managed forests, PEFC promotes Chain of Custody certification.

Chain of Custody certification outlines requirements for tracking certified material from the forest to the final product to ensure that the wood contained in the product or product line originates from certified forests.

PEFC Chain of Custody certification is essential for

  • companies to implement and demonstrate ethical business behaviour, and
  • consumers to make responsible purchasing decisions.

For a product to qualify for certification, all entities along the supply chain must possess a PEFC Chain of Custody certificate. Only then are companies eligible to use the PEFC label on their products and in product marketing to highlight the responsible sourcing of the raw material.

Forest Certification

Obtaining PEFC Sustainable Forest Management certification demonstrates that management practices meet requirements for best practice in sustainable forest management, including:

  • Biodiversity of forest ecosystems is maintained or enhanced
