Verify Your Sustainable Forest Management with a PEFC Certification
The steadily increasing environmental awareness among the public is leading to a higher demand for sustainable products. The "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes", PEFC in short, documents a responsible and environmentally-friendly forest management and timber production. With a PEFC Certification you therefore prove that you maintain or improve the ecological, economic and social roles of the forest.
We support you with the certification according to four PEFC programs:
Where with a PEFC Forest Management Certification you as a forest business prove the sustainability of your managed forests, the PEFC CoC Certification certifies the complete documentation and verification of the entire product chain (Chain of Custody). A PEFC Certification for Christmas Tree Farms verifies that Christmas trees are produced under consideration of ecological, economic and social aspects. If you want to prove that you meet the requirements for the management of a recreational forest, the PEFC Certification for Recreational Forests is the right choice for you.

Strengthen the Trust of Your Customers with a PEFC Certification
With a PEFC certificate, you will be able to clearly differentiate yourself from the competition, because you document that you are highly committed to the protection of the environment and to a conservation-minded use of the resource and raw material wood. In addition, with the certification you are giving the end user peace of mind – because the PEFC logo is a visible proof that the products come from sustainably managed forests. Your PEFC certificate thus serves as a unique selling point setting you apart from non-certified forest owners or non-certified parties in a product chain.
Another benefit for you: with a low administrative expense, you will obtain an ISO compliant certification at a low cost. The rates are exactly defined and thus predictable.
The Easy Way to Your PEFC™ Certification
The precise certification process varies depending on the product type and the size of the company. Usually, the certification process has four steps:
You contact our experienced experts. After submitting the required documents and coordinating the requirements for the auditor in charge, you will receive an order confirmation with a procedure number and instructions for the further procedural process.
We will conduct the audit on location at your premises and will inform you of any non-conformities during a closing meeting. Afterwards, the audit reports will be submitted by the auditor and the certificate is issued.
If all requirements are met you will receive your certificate. You may now use the PEFC logo on your products and thus demonstrate to your customers and end users that you manage your forests and process your timber in a sustainable way.
- Certification Renewal
Your PEFC is usually valid for five years. The subsequent check tests are conducted on an annual basis and decide about the maintenance, suspension or withdrawal of a certificate.
