PEFC™ Certification


Reliably assuring the responsible handling of the natural resources used along the entire upstream supply chain is indispensable for more and more companies. The two globally recognized forest certification systems PEFC™ and FSC® offer a variety of tools to implement this goal in the best possible way in your company. By using the logo on your products and promotional materials after certification, you communicate your corporate commitment to sustainable forest management effectively to the public and strengthen the brand value of your products and your company.

Information regarding PEFC™

Founded in Paris in 1999 as the Pan European Forest Certification Council (PEFC), non-European members also joined in 2002, so the meaning of the acronym PEFC™ was changed to "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes" in 2003. The primary goal of PEFC™ is the improvement of the sustainable forest management with regard to economic, ecological, as well as social standards. Further information regarding PEFC™ can be found at www.pefc.org and www.pefc.at
