Sustainable Timber: A Guide to Procurement for the Public Sector

Officials and those engaged in sustainability in local governments and public institutions around the world know that sustainability is key in forward-looking procurement policies and activities the world over. It is an integral part of the role of the public sector to contribute to the aspirations of their constituency and to meet their needs within the limits of our planet.

PEFC has accordingly created "Sustainable Timber: A Guide to Procurement for the Public Sector" to help these officials make the responsible choice in fostering the transition to more sustainable patterns of production and consumption. Key to this transition are the actions of local governments and public institutions, which are major consumers of a wide variety of products and services.
