Information on PEFC™

Founded in 1999 as the Pan European Forest Certification Council (PEFC) in Paris, non-European members also joined in 2002, so that in 2003 the meaning of the acronym PEFC ™ was changed to “Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes”. The primary goal of PEFC ™ is to improve sustainable forest management in terms of economic, ecological and social standards. Further information on PEFC ™ can be found at www.pefc.org or www.pefc.at
