Advance for PEFC green forestry scheme

European sustainable forestry certification umbrella PEFC is continuing to grow, its latest newsletter shows. Switzerland's "Q label" has become the ninth national certification scheme to be endorsed by the organisation while Belgium's is likely to be cleared soon. Spanish and British schemes are under assessment and Portugal has applied to join. Meanwhile the area of European forests certified under PEFC has risen to 38m hectares and is predicted to reach 40m by the end of the year. See PEFC October newsletter.
