FSC(Forest Stewardship Council) is the World’s Most Trusted Sustainable Forest Management Solution and PEFC(Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification ) endorse national forest certification systems that have been developed through multi-stakeholder processes and tailored to local priorities and conditions.
FSC™ and PEFC™ Chain of custody project certification proves that timber products have been responsibly sourced.
When it comes to individual projects, the construction industry faces specific challenges in proving that the timber specified and supplied to the project is from legal and sustainable sources.
Project chain of custody certification is a means of independently verifying the use of certified timber in a construction project and allowing the industry to use the certification trademark to promote their responsibly sourced credentials.
Companies can provide assurance to suppliers and clients that their projects contribute to the highest levels of environmental, ecological, social and economic standards.
