More Labels on Products an Important but Under Utilized Consumer Solution – Key PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue Conclusion

Demand for commodities for consumer products, such as soy, beef and palm oil, cause more than 70% of global tropical deforestation, and consumers trust certification labels – more than brands – as assurance for sustainability commodity production. These are two of the many takeaways of the 5th PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue, which last month gathered over 150 stakeholders in Paris, France.

Supported by Metsä Group, PEFC Portugal/CFFP and Suzano Pulp & Paper, and co-hosted by PEFC International and PEFC France, the Stakeholder Dialogue marked the final day of PEFC’s 2014 Forest Certification Week.


Under the theme of ‘Addressing Deforestation: joining forces to stimulate demand for sustainable forest products’ the PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue provided an opportunity to hear a wide range of expert views on this challenging subject and gather stakeholder views on key opportunities and solutions that forest certification and PEFC might positively impact.
