​Sustainable Forestry & PEFC scheme updates​

FIRA promotes the use of sustainable and legally sourced timber products throughout the industry via the Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme (FISP) and its involvement on the committee that prepared PAS 2021, a document that provides guidance on the due diligence required to meet the EU Timber Regulation (EU No 995/2010).

On Wednesday 11th January, FIRA joined approximately 20 other industry stakeholders at a PEFC UK workshop in London to discuss sustainable forestry and receive an update on PEFC scheme coverage and work that is underway to update the PEFC standard.
