PEFC promotes sustainable forest management and adopts a “bottom up approach”. It is a non-profit, umbrella organisation that endorses national forest certification schemes.
Certification according to BM Trada Forest Products Chain of Custody standard enables us to trade other certified and legally verified material. Recognised schemes include:
Bureau Veritas Origin & Legality Du Bois (OLB)
