About PEFC Asia Promotions
PEFC Asia Promotions is a non-profit-making organisation headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Our objective is to contribute to the protection of forest and the preservation of the environment in the various parts of the world by raising the awareness and profile of the ideas and logo of PEFC, which aims at global diffusion and increase of sustainable forest management and wood-products produced from materials produced from sustainably managed forests. We wish to reach people, consumers and industries related to forestry, timber, wood-products, pulp and paper in each country and region.
PEFC Asia Promotions is specifically and solely engaged in the promotion and propagation of the ideas and logo of the PEFC schemes (Sustainable Forest Management certifications and Chain of Custody certifications), and not in the certification procedures directly. The procedures for applying for the PEFC certifications will be undertaken by PEFC certification bodies.
Our principal activities are the following:
- The development and distribution of the PEFC Japanese Brochure
- Giving presentations to organisations, companies, groups and individuals who are interested in PEFC
- Providing explanations on the basic matters about the procedures and documents related to PEFC certifications: Sustainable Forest Management Certifications and CoC Certifications
- Assisting in communication and serving as a liaison with the PEFC Council and its members
- Introducing the PEFC certification bodies in Japan
- Sponsoring seminars and symposiums related to the PEFC schemes and the sustainable forest management
