PEFC EU Policy Seminar

PEFC EU Policy Seminar


Join us as we 'Re Think SFM', better understand the opportunities for forestry and forest-based industries in sustainable finance and celebrate the 20th anniversary of PEFC.

Session 1: Re Think Sustainable Forest Management

The expectations placed on our forests are growing, as are expectations in terms of sustainability and contributing to climate change mitigation. This session will provide an overview of some of the latest trends in forest management and sustainability insurance.

Speakers include: ISEAL on landscape certification, ATIBT on sustainable forest management in the Congo Basin, CEPF on certification and European small-forest holders, PEFC and the new Sustainable Forest Mangement benchmark standard, EFI on climate smart forestry and Université Catholique de Louvain on social representations of forests in Europe.

Session 2: Forestry and Forest-Based Industries in the Sustainable Finance Action Plan

This session will look at the opportunities for forestry and forest-based industries within the EU Sustainable Finance legislative package and the Taxonomy. Speakers from the Climate Bond Initiative, Nordea the Nordic Bank, the EU Commission (DG Environment) and the European State Forest Organisations will share their views.

The two sessions will be followed by the PEFC 20th Anniversary Cocktail Party.
