UK confirms PEFC sustainability

20.12.2008

The UK Environmental Ministry confirms that PEFC ensures sustainable forest management. PEFC is together with MTCC and FSC re-endorsed for public procurement of forest based products in United Kingdom.

The UK Government published the assessments of certification systems Friday. The expert advisors, CPET, have assisted the UK Ministry for environment, food and rural affairs, DEFRA. They conclude that PEFC and the other certification systems fulfil the requirements for ensuring legality and sustainability in public procurement.

The decision is an important message also for private procurement in UK and for private en public procurement policies in countries inside an outside Europe.
