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.

PEFC Annual Review 2015

Annual Review

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.
