Sustainable Development Goals

Sustainable Development Goals

SDG 1: No poverty

Sustainable Development Goals

Forests contribute to livelihoods and economic growth across the full value chain, from people depending on forests for their livelihoods all the way to the consumers of wood fibre products.

SDG 2: Zero hunger

Sustainable Development Goals

Food from forests such as mushrooms, nuts, berries or game make an important contribution to the food supply and nutritional quality of diets, especially in some of the world’s most vulnerable regions.

SDG 3: Good health and well-being

Sustainable Development Goals

By regulating the climate, providing clean air and water, and through recreational benefits that support physical and mental health, forests and trees play a significant role in for our well-being.

SDG 4: Quality education

Sustainable Development Goals

Given the relevancy of forestry in rural areas, there is a strong role that forest owners can play in providing education and training to workers and local businesses and communities.

SDG 5: Gender equality

Sustainable Development Goals

In many countries, the link between poverty, gender and sustainable forest management is a critical issue. Rural women are heavily involved in forest work, but frequently disadvantaged. PEFC certification promotes gender equality through a variety of requirements and processes.
