Join our year of celebrations!

From January 2019 until June 2020, we are celebrating our achievements from 20 years of caring for forests. And the photo contest is part of the celebration! Take part and see your photo exhibited at our Anniversary PEFC Forest Certification Week!

Speaking of photos: we have uncovered our old images to give you a glimpse of PEFC in the early years and how we have changed over time.

Through the photos and a series of chapters, we will tell the PEFC story from 1999 to 2019. Voices of the past and present will speak about highlights from the last 20 years, and the future of PEFC.

Make sure you follow the hashtag #20yearsofcaring to see what we and all our members are doing!
