TFD organized and sponsored a meeting for the 6 CEO’s from the leading forest certification systems (ATFS, CSA, FSC, MTCC, PEFC, SFI). The meeting occurred at the London office of IIED.
The last few years have seen the proliferation of forest product certification on international and national scales. Until recently, the systems for certifying these products stood fully apart from one another, with little communication about lessons learned or assessment of strategies. Seeking to facilitate the sharing of this information, TFD convened a series of dialogues from 2002 to 2004.
