We are proud to be a Member of PEFC International. Ukraine join the PEFC family
At 24th General Assembly at the heart of this year’s PEFC Forest Certification Week, Ukraine became 52nd national member. The General Assembly, the highest decision making body, voted Ukraine into the alliance.
“We are very happy to see the PEFC family growing further and we are looking forward to working together with our new members from the Ukraine and Guyana,” said Ben Gunneberg, CEO of PEFC International.
“Ukraine is one of the largest countries in Europe, and 15.6% of land is covered by forests. That is 10.4 million hectares,” said Mariya Maha from the Association National Voluntary Forest Certification System, our new national member for Ukraine.
“We believe that PEFC can support us in establishing and implementing our only national forest standard. The reputation of PEFC will help us to increase the trust level of forest workers, and build a strong cooperation with all stakeholders to eliminate the risks to our forests.”
