20 years ago, European small-forest owners came together to create an international forest certification system that had their needs at heart. On 30 June 1999, PEFC was born. From January 2019 to June 2020, we are celebrating the achievements from 20 years of caring for forests globally and locally. Through a series of chapters, we will tell the story of PEFC, from the early ideas back in 1999, until today. From July to June, we will publish texts, photos and videos about PEFC’s history, approach, members, stakeholders and much more. Each month, one chapter will shed light on another facet of PEFC. Voices of the past and present will speak about highlights from the last 20 years, key events that have shaped the organisation, and the future of PEFC.
