The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) has published a new brochure hoping to answer some of the most frequently answered questions about the differences between their certification and that of The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
The two internationally recognised certification systems, PEFC and FSC are explained in the brochure, defining their origin, standards, and definition, in easily understandable language. The brochure also acts as a tool for certified companies who may have questions about the schemes, while at the same time reinforcing their commitment to a sustainable future for the world’s forests.
Alun Watkins, Executive Director at PEFC said, “we are often asked about the similarities and difference between the two global forest management certification schemes. This publication aims to help answer these questions and we hope that it will provide a useful resource to both Chain of Custody certified companies, and those specifying certified products in their corporate procurement policies.”
Both global sustainable forest management certification systems share the same goals of ensuring that forests are managed in line with challenging environmental, social and economic requirements.
