Supply chain companies

Brands and retailers

For companies at the end of the supply chain, such as brand owners and retailers, PEFC certification offers many benefits: from highlighting sustainable procurement choices to meeting demanding legislative and market requirements.

Forest owners

PEFC sustainable forest management certification enables forest owners to provide assurances that they manage their forests in line with challenging environmental, social and economic requirements – balancing people, planet and profit.

Certification and accreditation bodies
