FSC™ and PEFC Certification - Sustainable Forestry
Third-party PEFC and FSC™ certification is proof of a forest owner’s social and environmental responsibility.
Purchasers of wood and paper products increasingly prefer to select those that are sourced from sustainably managed forests. However, not all forests are proven as being sustainably managed. That’s why third-party certification of your sustainable forest management practices is a true competitive advantage. The independent recognition of your environmental and social responsibility commitments will ease access to the markets where sustainability is an important issue.
Intertek is an accredited certification body for the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). PEFC is an independent non-profit organization that encourages sustainable practices throughout the forest supply chain. With more than 500 million acres of forest certified under a wide range of national certifications, PEFC is the world’s largest forest certification system. By leveraging Intertek’s deep expertise and business-focused approach to auditing, you can be assured that your SFM program meets the sustainability challenges of today and tomorrow.
We also offer Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) audits through a partnership with Scientific Certification Systems. FSC certification verifies that your organization meets the FSC Principles and Criteria of good forest management, including social, cultural, ecological, and economic considerations.
