PEFC Strategy 2018 - 2022

To date, PEFC has become a global alliance of 49 national forest certification systems covering over 300 million hectares of certified sustainably managed forests. Over 18,000 companies are benefitting from chain of custody certification, delivering certified products to an increasingly discerning market place.

The value of PEFC now goes beyond setting standards for forest certification, as it enables society to understand better the overarching benefits that forests provide to a sustainable world. We now need to address some key challenges, including the need for more market demand, the ability to position the relevancy of certification and PEFC’s distinctive competitive advantages as a solution to many of the world’s challenges.

To do this, we need to expand our resources and improve the effectiveness of our way of working. By focusing our efforts on key strategic pathways of focused engagement, driving innovation and increasing the effectiveness of communications overall, we will help our stakeholders and the full forest products supply chain begin to unlock and build on the full contribution of forests for a sustainable world.
