PEFC and Forests: Your Climate Change Solution

PEFC certification and you

Forests are at the heart of society's action to combat climate change and its impacts. As carbon sinks, trees capture and store carbon, removing significant volumes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Forest products meanwhile, provide us with a carbon-neutral alternative to our reliance on fossil fuels.

PEFC Annual Review 2018

Annual Review

Forests support over half of all terrestrial species diversity, impact 1.6 billion people directly and affect all of us indirectly. However, we can see that the world’s increasingly urban society struggles to appreciate the fundamental role that forestry, and the whole forest products supply chain, plays in delivering and maintaining a sustainable world. At PEFC, we have a vital role to play in changing this paradigm.
