Wijma and PEFC

Wijma sources PEFC certified timber from several select long term business partners, who we have worked closely with for over 25 years.   The vast majority of our certified timber sold, under this certification scheme is in European Oak, which we supply as either sawn timber or pre-machined kit form components or constructions.

All timber is sourced and sold through our head office Wijma Kampen B.V. who has a PEFC certified chain of custody for processing and trading in certified timber and timber products.

About PEFC

The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international non-profit, non-government organization committed to the promotion of Sustainable Forest Management through independent third-party certification.

With over 30 national certification systems and more than 250 million hectares of certified forests, PEFC is the world’s largest forest certification system.  The standard seeks to ensure that the worlds forests are managed sustainably, to ensure that the environmental, social and economic benefits that forests offer can be enjoyed now and for future generations.

PEFC works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote sustainable forest management and to ensure that timber is produced with the highest respect for the ecological, social and ethical standards. Through their eco-label customers are able to identify products supplied through a chain of custody from sustainably managed forests.

The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification is an umbrella organization, endorsing national forest certification systems developed through multi-stakeholder processes and tailored to local priorities and conditions.

Each national forest certification system undergoes rigorous third-party assessment against the unique Sustainability Benchmarks, which have been developed based on internationally recognized processes and guidelines for the promotion of Sustainable Forest management to ensure compliance with globally agreed requirements, with the benchmark criteria regularly revised to incorporate evolving expectations, new scientific knowledge, societal change, and to incorporate latest best practice.
