Who are PEFC?
PEFC International is an umbrella organisation that endorses national forest certification systems developed through multi-stakeholder processes and tailored to local priorities and conditions.
PEFC works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that timber and non-timber forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. Thanks to its eco-label, customers and consumers are able to identify products from sustainably managed forests.
TPG Training and Consultancy can prepare companies for compliance with the standard, both for single site or multi-site organisations, and can arrange for assessment via an PEFC accredited certification body.
