IRSG: PEFC International joins the IRSG Panel of Associates
The International Rubber Study Group (IRSG) announced that the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), a global alliance of national forest certification systems, has joined the IRSG Panel of Associates.
As an international non-profit, non-governmental organisation, PEFC promotes sustainable forest management through independent third-party certification. PEFC provides forest owners, from the large to the small, with a tool to demonstrate their responsible practices, while empowering companies to buy sustainably. The PEFC label enables consumers to recognise products originating from a PEFC-certified forest – a forest managed in line with the strictest environmental, social and economic requirements.
Available to all companies that manufacture, process, trade or sell rubber and rubber wood products, PEFC chain of custody certification can track certified rubber and rubber wood from the plantation to the final products.
