PEFC is basically the same as an FSC® certification. Both certification types ensure that the wood and paper used, comes from sustainable forestry. PEFC was established in 1999 by 11 European countries. The difference is that PEFC is a national standard, and FSC® is a global standard. When a certain country already has a certain standard of sustainable forestry, they can apply for a PEFC certification. Bio Futura BV has been registered in the PEFC group certificate under registration number SCS-PEFC/COC-000652-FH.
