PEFC Sustainable Wood Furniture Awareness Campaign Launch
Wood furniture supply chain sustainability and responsible procurement are critical to ensure that we all benefit from forest-based products now, while preserving the values for our future generations.
This can happen if we understand our roles and start working together to raise the bar and find sustainable solutions. This is why we are launching an awareness campaign to support Sustainable Furniture with a panel discussion.

We launched our furniture campaign on Wednesday, 15 September, 10:00-11:00 CEST.
Check out the webinar recording:
The one-hour program featured a panel discussion on the responsible sourcing of forest-based materials for wood furniture. We welcomed four incredible panellists to share perspectives, and discussed the challenges to, and opportunities for, sustainability in the furniture sector.
Our panellists are representatives from:
Ms Alina Lehikoinen - President
International Forestry Students' Association
Mr Nicolaas K. de Lange - Secretary-General
ASEAN Furniture Industries Council
- Forest Certification
Mr Alun Watkins - Executive Director of PEFC UK and Chairman of the Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme
- Furniture retailer
The session was moderated by Michael Tatarski, a journalist who has covered forest sustainability issues extensively in Southeast Asia.
Together we can help each other reach high sustainability goals. We will also be providing resources specific to the furniture sector that can help you tell, and celebrate, your own sustainability story!
