The world is looking towards sustainable supply chains in the furniture industry as a way to protect the world’s forests and all of the essential ecosystem services that they provide. But how exactly can you prove your commitment to responsible sourcing to your customers, shareholders, regulatory bodies, and partners in the furniture industry?

PEFC chain of custody certification is the answer. Join us on 8-9 March for our next webinar to learn how you can unlock access to new markets, comply with strict legislative and ESG requirements, and send a clear message to your customers that the wood in their furniture has been responsibly sourced and tracked from the forest to the showroom.
