The PEFC Italia is a non-profit association that constitutes the national governing body of the PEFC certification system (Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes), in few words is the Forest Certification Scheme Evaluation Program. The PEFC is an international initiative based on a broad agreement between the parties involved in the implementation of sustainable forest management at national and regional level. The representatives of forest owners and poplars, final consumers, users, freelancers, the world of woodworking and the craft industry participate in the development of the PEFC. One of its objectives is to improve the image of forestry and the forest-wood supply chain, effectively providing a market tool that allows the commercialization of wood and forest products deriving from forests and plants managed in a sustainable manner.
