PEFC in 2018: Moving forward together
8 November 2018 News
As the PEFC alliance grows, we continue to work together as a global team, collaborating and supporting each other: moving forward together – and 2018 has been a great example of this.
From increasing access to PEFC certification for smallholders through Trees outside Forests, to collaborating with the fashion industry to promote the use of innovative forest-based fibres, we are unlocking new opportunities for certification.
We are driving innovation through projects and partnerships worldwide, not forgetting vital outreach with key sectors such as the architect and construction community and awareness raising with consumers through our photo contest.
With next year our 20th anniversary, we still keep to our roots, ensuring more small- and family forest owners are able to achieve PEFC certification: whether that is by supporting stakeholders to develop national forest certification systems, or by developing tools to make certification more efficient and cost effective.
As we enter the second day of our PEFC Forest Certification Week, the one time in the year when the whole PEFC alliance meets to discuss the future of our organization, we also take the time to celebrate some of our achievements from this year - with the special PEFC Week newsletter.
