Under the theme Making Certification SMART this year we explored and discovered new and emerging technologies which show promise for supporting forest certification.

The 2017 PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue brought together forest sector stakeholders, leading technology providers, innovators and sustainability experts to exchange views on what’s needed, what’s working and where are the opportunities for scaling up application. 

Overcoming barriers and providing solutions

Whether it is hardware, software, services or tools, the incorporation of technology within forest certification can overcome many barriers. Wide ranging applications provide solutions for everyday challenges such as:

  • Improving transparency in complex supply chains
  • Enhancing the ability to map, monitor and manage forest resources
  • Establishing new ways to engage stakeholders and improve cooperation

PEFC welcomed to Finland

The backdrop of Finland and PEFC’s 22nd General Assembly provided a ripe moment to exchange experiences and challenge each other to re-imagine how forest certification should re-equip for the next decade.

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