UK NGOs slam DEFRA decision to approve PEFC & SFI
UK NGOs sent out a strong worded release condemning UK decision to approve PEFC and SFI. It should be noted though that DEFRA states in its own release:
"PEFC is on probation until it has demonstrated to our satisfaction that its national organisations are all following the new standards. We will also be watching to see that only those SFI certificates that confirm the required percentage of sustainable timber are accepted by government buyers."
