The PEFC certification system is governed by strict guidelines. There are regular checks to ensure that forests are being managed sustainably, and these are carried out by independent organisations. Standard setting, certification and accreditation areas are kept strictly separate. The label guarantees that, from raw material to finished end product, the whole production process and the complete supply chain are fully compliant with the PEFC standard. Forest owners and companies have an equal responsibility in this. For the consumer, this means the greatest possible transparency: sustainability guaranteed.
