What difference does certification make?
Certification bodies such as FSC® and PEFC™ set stringent standards for the international trade in legal wood. A certified chain of custody identifies the original wood source and traces it through to your end product.
Annual auditing ensures the legality of the system. The exacting guidelines for FSC® and PEFC™ certification protect not only forests, but safeguard wildlife habitats, respect local and indigenous communities, and ensure that the original land owner, and forest workers are treated fairly and compensated appropriately. Certification lends credibility to organizations but also serves to reassure consumers that the product they are purchasing has not harmed the environment.
