PEFC Week newsletter
From the building momentum in Asia to the start of our standards revision process, 2016 was another busy year for the PEFC alliance – as you will see, we managed to fit a lot in! Especially for PEFC Forest Certification Week 2016 in Bali, Indonesia, we celebrated some of our achievements from this year with the special PEFC Week newsletter.
A special supplement on forest certification in Asia to keep you abreast of these exciting movements under foot and to motivate and inspire you to get involved.
PEFC certification and you
The PEFC label allows you to visibly communicate your commitment to responsible sourcing. This is becoming ever more important as consumers are increasingly conscious of the impact of their buying decisions. Find out how PEFC certification and the PEFC label can benefit your business.
2015 was the year that saw the adoption of the SDGs by the UN General Assembly and important climate change commitments at COP21 in Paris. This Annual Review captures just a few of our activities and those of our members, but it already demonstrates that sustainable forest management is much more than just an environmental issue. It equally addresses the social, economic and cultural dimensions of sustainability at the core of the 17 SDGs.
By the end of 2015, over 272 million hectares of forest area was PEFC certified, and more than 10,700 PEFC Chain of Custody certificates had been issued.
