PEFC stakeholder seminars
The PEFC is holding two workshops to gain a clear understanding of what lies behind its label and why certification and chain of custody is so important. These workshops are free to attend but places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so early registration is recommended.
PEFC is widely recognised as a leading advocate of sustainable forest management and its distinctive ‘two trees’ logo appears on forest products around the world – a symbol of responsible business and assurance of legal and sustainable sourcing. But what does the PEFC label really mean and what does it guarantee? The workshops will explain the rigorous procedures behind PEFC certification and better equip you to promote your organisation’s certified status to your customers.
Key personnel from certified companies (chain of custody administrators, marketing and sales) are invited to take part in discussions surrounding a number of key topics. The half day seminar will cover:
Sustainable forest management – what it involves and why it matters.
Chain of Custody certification – your chance to have your questions. answered about the process which tracks a product from the forest to the end user.
How to use the PEFC label to promote your company’s investment in certification to your customers.
The market drivers for certified forest products (legislation, public sector and corporate procurement policies and consumer expectations).
Delegates will have a choice of two city centre venues:
