If you source, use, trade or sell natural rubber & rubberwood products and care about protecting the world’s forests, this webinar is for you. Suppliers, buyers, manufacturers, rubber associations, all entities along the rubber supply chain are welcome.
How does certification work for a product like rubber? PEFC sustainable forest management and chain of custody certification has long been a proven method to demonstrate sustainability for other forest products, yet they are relatively new for the rubber industry. But early adopters are on the move.
PEFC understands the unique challenges for rubber certification, including the prevalence of smallholders and the daily pace of harvesting activities. PEFC has relied on this combination of expertise and relationships to successfully pilot chain of custody and group certification of smallholders and companies for both natural rubber and rubberwood.
Join us to learn from these promising successes and get an insider’s view on how you can achieve certification. Participate in an in-depth discussion that will address common technical questions that come up during the certification process. Learn from those who have come before and take advantage of valuable collaboration opportunities.
PEFC is actively looking for more partners to collaborate with. Come and learn from those who are already seeing benefits from rubber certification. We’re here to help, at every step along the way.
