11 Progressive gain PEFC accreditation. (25-07-07)

 

Progressive are pleased to announce PEFC accreditation. PEFC (Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification) is a global umbrella organisation for the assessment, and mutual recognition, of national forest certification schemes that are developed through a multi-stakeholder process. This process, respects the principle of subsidiary, which means that although national schemes remain independent, they cooperate with each other under the PEFC umbrella. This ensures that the wood products emanating from each scheme meet equivalent standards and can therefore be traded internationally. The national schemes build upon the inter-governmental processes for sustainable forest management, a series of ongoing mechanisms and an outcome of the Rio Earth Summit, which are supported by 149 governments in the world covering 85% of the global forest area. With over 196 million hectares certified, PEFC (Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) is the largest resource of certified wood from sustainable forest management. Third party audited, to internationally recognised and globally respected certification processes ensures that PEFC certification provides a transparent system of forest inspection. Chain of custody certification provides a means of tracking fibre from harvested tree to end product. Specifying PEFC certified fibre/paper will provide you and your customers with assurances that the paper products originate from legal and sustainable sources.
