Delivering impacts in the forest and beyond

About PEFC

Through delivering forest certification over the last 15 years, PEFC has positively impacted significant areas of forest through requiring improved forestry practices and bringing attention to sustainable management. What’s less acknowledged is our impact outside of forests. These impacts may be less obvious and beyond the traditional scope of forest certification, but they are exciting and hold much promise for scaling up.
