Paper & Packaging to be the major attention in PEFC Sustainability Fair

Published on : Thursday, October 13, 2016

pefc“Don’t be afraid to use paper and packaging, just make sure they are PEFC-certified!” –  This is set to be the key message of the 1st PEFC Sustainability Fair in Chile later this month.


PEFC is inviting to join the Chilean Sustainable Forest Certification System, CERTFOR, and PEFC International, in Santiago, Chile on 26 October, as they are seeking of raising awareness of sustainable forest products and promote the use of paper and packaging certified by PEFC, the world’s leading forest certification system.


Responsible procurement is a concept that has not only grown in importance for consumers. Today, it is also part of public policy in Chile for the purchase of paper and furniture, and a cornerstone in programs of corporate social responsibility (CSR) for many organizations around the world.


Have a look around the Fair-ground

The 1st PEFC Sustainability Fair will focus on giving visibility to certified paper distributors and printing and packaging companies that are already providing sustainable products for Chile’s domestic market.


Participants will get the chance to explore the exhibition ground and meet with PEFC-certified companies from all around the country: seeing their products and learning why they chose PEFC certification.


PEFC would encourage procurement, marketing, and CSR executives from different organizations, public and private alike, to join them and discover how purchasing locally produced, PEFC-certified paper and packaging products can be a real benefit to visitors’ and distributors’ businesses.


What one can expect from the Fair

They begin the day with the PEFC label, highlighting its environmental, social and commercial relevance and its global reach in Chile. A PEFC-certified company will then take the stage to explain how it benefits from PEFC certification, before a retail company explains why the PEFC label is an important component of its corporate sustainability program.


In the afternoon, PEFC Spain will offer a workshop for commercial executives of certified companies and organizations interested in improving their approach for offering PEFC-certified products on the market.


South America Promotions Initiative

The Sustainability Fair is part of the South America Promotions Initiative, a project lead by PEFC International to grow demand for PEFC certification and certified products in South America.

Through the initiative, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay are delivering market initiatives to stimulate growth of certification while strengthening and raising awareness of the PEFC brand.
