Furniture campaign launch
15 September 2021 News
At a minimum, PEFC believes that forests need to be respected as what they truly are to us – a home. And with forests under threat from land-use change and climate change, it has become more important than ever for us to protect that home.
That’s why PEFC is championing sustainable forest management around the world, and why we are launching an awareness campaign specifically for wooden furniture – “Forests are Home”.
Forests are Home was launched on 15 September. Hundreds of furniture retailers, manufacturers, foresters, and associations from 46 different countries around the world joined us for the event, which included a panel discussion with panellists from the International Forestry Students’ Association (IFSA), the ASEAN Furniture Industry Council (AFIC), Fournier Group, and PEFC UK. That discussion, as well as the entirety of the launch event, can be viewed below.
