Moving Beyond Timber: PEFC 2011 Annual Review

02-Jul-2012

'Moving Beyond Timber' is the theme of the PEFC 2011 Annual Review, reflecting changes that have taken place over the past few years in the forest-based sector, among forest users and uses. It reflects the outlook for forest certification and PEFC. When PEFC began its work over a decade ago, the focus of the forest-based sector was much more oriented towards a 'traditional' wood and timber heartland with its 'traditional' users and uses. In the last few years, there has been a market shift in this focus towards one in which the forest-based sector has a much more prominent role to play in efforts to overcome global challenges. Hard copies of the PEFC 2011 Annual Review are available from AFS Ltd.
