FSC and PEFC Certifications
Forest Management certification, such as FSC & PEFC, ensures that forests are managed to high standards covering social, environmental, and economic issues.
Some 10% of the global forests are certified so the supply of credibly certified raw material for all our operations remains a challenge.
Certification provides the consumer with the assurance that forest products originate from responsibly managed forests.
FSC was established in 1993 at the initiative of environmental organisations and is a global, non-profit organisation
FSC is dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide
Approximately 4% of the world’s total forest area are FSC-certified
PEFC was founded in 1999 in response to the specific requirements of small and family forest owners
PEFC currently has 247 million hectares certified which globally equates to approximately 6% of the world’s forests
PEFC has proven to be more popular for large numbers of small forest owners
