2017 PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue header 670x328

This year our PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue explored and discovered the benefits and potential for incorporating technology solutions into forest certification.

Whether it is hardware, software, services or tools, the incorporation of technology within forest certification can overcome many barriers. But what technologies exist, and how can they best be used? This, and much more, is what we discussed at the 2017 PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue!

The two-day event combined a one day in conference setting with a one day field trip to enable optimal exchange, demonstration and in-depth discussion on the topic.

The PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue closed the 2017 PEFC Forest Certification Week. Spanning a full week, PEFC Week is the perfect opportunity for everyone along the forest certification supply chain to gather together to discuss some of the key topics in the world of forestry.
