Caring for our forests is not something that we can do alone. Currently, only around 10% of the world’s forests are certified as sustainably managed, so there is a lot of work for us all to do. From making responsible choices when you go shopping, to getting involved in standard setting, or even giving your feedback on the work that we do, there are numerous ways that you can get involved and help protect our forests.
Standards and guides
From the requirements that companies must meet to achieve PEFC Chain of Custody certification, to the specific steps stakeholders must take as they develop their national forest certification system, our documents are vital to the functioning of our organisation.
Our standards promote environmentally sound, socially just, and economically viable management of our forests. They reflect the latest scientific and industry experience and are regularly reviewed.
