PEFC


Here at Gabriel Ash we promote our timber structures as being PEFC Certified..


But what does that mean?


This section explores the meaning of PEFC certification, and why we should be aware of it when purchasing timber based products...




What is PEFC

PEFC (Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification) 

is an international non-profit, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management through independent third-party certification.

PEFC has recognised certification systems in 40 countries.







These account for over 268 million hectares of forests, making it the world’s largest forest and wood product certification system. 

This is equivalent to two-thirds of the globe’s certified forest area. 

More than 16,000 companies are involved with PEFC Chain of Custody certification worldwide. From this thousands of products are now available as PEFC-certified.








The PEFC ensures that we are held accountable for the economical sourcing of our timber! 


This means that we follow strict procedures to track the purchasing, manufacturing and sales of our timber to assure environmentally sound forest management.





There are many beneficial factors we are promoting by being PEFC Certified..



 In PEFC Certified Forests,

every tree harvested is

replaced with another one

to ensure that forests can continue

to supply raw materials, without

endangering the tree population




This forest management is good for our climate...



PEFC - Certified forest owners

are held accountable

for the plants and animals

within their lands.

This minimises the destruction

of habitats and protects

the diversity of plants and animals

around the world





Forestry work can be dangerous 

and unreliable work...

PEFC ensures consistent and 

safe employment to people

all around the world










By making the decision to buy PEFC

You are supporting the efforts

to protect and sustain the

biodiversity of our forests...

From timber supplies to toilet roll

the smallest changes can 

Sustain a greener future




Look out for the distinctive 'two trees' logo.

This symbolises PEFC's assurance that the

wood, paper, and packaging products are

sourced from responsibly-managed forests

where people, planet, and profit are all

taken into account.
