Whether it is hardware, software, services or tools, the incorporation of technology within forest certification can overcome many barriers.

But what technologies exist, and how can they best be used?

Join us for the 2017 PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue ‘Making Certification SMART’ (16-17 November 2017; Helsinki, Finland) to find out more!

Wide-ranging applications provide solutions for everyday challenges such as improving transparency in complex supply chains, enhancing the ability to map, monitor or manage forest resources, or establishing new ways to engage stakeholders and improve cooperation.

Our two-day dialogue will explore and discover new and emerging technologies which show promise for supporting forest certification.

Don’t delay, register now!

What can you expect?
The 2017 PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue will bring together forest sector stakeholders, leading technology providers and innovators, and certification experts. Together, we will exchange views on what is needed, what is working and where are the opportunities for scaling up application.

Join us in Finland!
The backdrop of Finland and the PEFC Forest Certification Week provides a ripe moment to exchange experiences and challenge each other to re-imagine how forest certification should re-equip for the next decade.

The two-day event will combine one day in conference setting with a one-day field trip to enable optimal exchange, demonstration and in-depth discussion on the topic. Join us the evening before as we kick-off the event with a cocktail reception at 6:30pm on Wednesday 15 November.
