PEFC Austria raises awareness for sustainable forestry

Under the theme ”Das g’fallt dem Wald” (“The forest likes that“), PEFC Austria concluded their successful multimedia campaign, raising awareness for the role of sustainable forestry in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the contribution that each of us can make.

The message was clear: the PEFC label assures consumers that wood-based products come from sustainably managed forests. Choosing products carrying the label means contributing to healthy forests and active climate protection.

One of the highlights of the campaign was PEFC Austria’s participation in the “INITIATIVE2030 – live the goals” project. The voluntary, non-profit information initiative publicises and disseminates the core contents of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

While the world’s forests contribute to all 17 Goals, PEFC Austria’s actions focused on SDG 13 “Climate Action”.

“Wood from sustainably managed forests not only stores CO2 while it grows, but also when it is processed into high-quality products,” explained Dr Kurt Ramskogler, Chairman of PEFC Austria.
