PEFC is the international independent quality mark for promoting sustainable forest management. The ultimate goal of PEFC is that all forests in the world are managed in a sustainable way. More than 1,000,000 forest owners who are members of PEFC manage more than 250 million hectares of certified forest worldwide according to the requirements and criteria of PEFC. Nearly 16,000 companies in the supply chain have a PEFC Chain of Custody certificate to supply sustainable wood and paper. For example, PEFC certified wood (products) and paper are traceable from the forest to the many end products.
The Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC) is an international organization committed to conservation and responsible forest management worldwide.
FSC speaks of responsible forest management when the ecological, social and economic aspects associated with forest management are taken into account in a balanced way. FSC has arranged this in a transparent manner. Partly because of this, FSC is supported by all major environmental and development organizations. And FSC is unique in this!
