Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Chain of Custody
PEFC chain of custody is an international forest certification scheme providing independent verified assurance of only certified forest-based material contained in a product throughout the supply chain that originates from sustainably and responsibly managed forests.
PEFC chain of custody certification adds value in your business by enabling you to showcase your legal and sustainable sourcing of forest products to your customers.
For companies at the end of the supply chain, such as brand owners and retailers, PEFC certification offers wide range of benefits by highlighting your sustainable procurement choices for fulfilling demanding legislative and existing market requirements.
