How Could PEFC Benefit Your Business?

PEFC, Forest, Certification, Sustainability

PEFC is the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, and is the world’s leading forest certification system.

More than 300 million hectares of forests are certified to PEFC’s internationally recognised Sustainability Benchmarks. These supply more than 18,000 Chain of Custody certified companies globally with responsibly sourced timber and wood-based products.

PEFC was founded by small and family forest owners to demonstrate excellence in sustainable forest management.

A recent survey taken by PEFC showed that 54% of consumers who took part, were reassured mostly by the label/logo displayed on the product that environmental considerations and sustainable development have been considered.

PEFC Chain of Custody certification can allow your organisation to demonstrate responsible supply chain management to your customers. It will provide you with a variety of benefits that help the environment, people and your bottom line.

It could also give you access to new markets and a wider range of availability and choice.

It shows business leadership on sustainability and compliance with legislation, and will allow you to have complete trace-ability on any products you supply which display the PEFC label.

You can find more about PEFC Certification on their website here.

This week we have been certifying clients in the Timber Trade and Packaging industries in Warwickshire and Tyne and Wear, who wanted to show that their wood and non-timber forest products have been sourced from sustainably-managed forests.

If you would like to know more one of our dedicated staff would be more than happy to assist you. We can be contacted on 01952 288325, you can initiate a live chat or you can complete our online enquiry form.

Chain of Custody Certification

Chain of Custody Certification is very busy this week, with Auditors visiting Hinckley, Swanscombe and Norfolk.

Last week saw requests for quotes from Architectural Companies in Bath and Birmingham, also a Commercial Printing Company in Colchester.

These companies want to display responsible procurement with an independent Certification System. This in turn shows to their clients that they can meet specific requirements.

There is a fact sheet containing more information on this, on the FSC website which can be found here.

Why FSC?

FSC helps with sustainable forest management thus protecting the plants, animals and people who live in them. A YouGov poll shows that 72% of the British public is fairly likely to have a preference towards FSC Certified products.

There is a growing market for responsibly sourced timber, so why not join the businesses who have already made the choice to source responsibly by obtaining FSC Certification? You could gain a more diverse customer base by being certified with us and showing the FSC logos on your products. You’ll be entered on to the FSC database, where consumers who are searching specifically for products like yours can find your company and it’s contact details immediately, and know that you are conscious about sustainability. FSC can improve your credibility with consumers and stakeholders and make a positive statement about your company’s stance on deforestation and sustainability.
