Caring for our forests globally

Welcoming Remarks by M. Marc-Antoine de Sèze, President of PEFC France, at the 19th PEFC General Assembly

"If we want forests to be managed in a sustainable way then all parties with an interest in the forest must come together. Only PEFC proposes this. It is TOGETHER that we will write the future of sustainable forestry certification. We must not lose sight of the fact that the stakes are high and serious and we cannot afford to become dissipated."

"This gathering together is not a utopia, a fantasy or a religion. It is concrete and real and is part of our day-to-day activity. It is shared by all those who contribute to the development of PEFC. Thanks to this shared governance, PEFC constitutes a formidable barrier against every form of dogmatism."
