PEFC (Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification)
PEFC is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management through independent certification. Globally, over 320 million hectares of forest area are managed in compliance with PEFC's internationally accepted Sustainability Benchmarks - that's roughly the size of Egypt, South Africa and Turkey combined. PEFC certification provides assurances that forests are managed in line with demanding environmental, social and economic requirements.
Certified timber is now a key requirement in many building projects from structural applications such as timber frame, engineered wood products such as Glulam, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) and Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), to components such as engineered floor cassettes, roof trusses and joinery products.
PEFC certified timber offers the widest choice of sustainable timber species available to the construction sector including Western Red Cedar, European Larch, Douglas Fir, European Redwood, Beech, Cherry, European Oak and American White Oak.
