In the past human activities, the deforestation and improper management of forests have caused widespread forest decline, leading to a shortage of global forest resources, the ecological environment is deteriorating day by day, and the space on which mankind depends for survival has been seriously threatened. This issue has aroused the concern of people from all walks of life. In the 1990s, people connected the sustainable management of forests with the wood sales market. Consumers with strong environmental awareness hope to support sustainable forest management by purchasing only wood products from well-managed forests. It finally speed up forest certification to appear.

As an international non-profit, non-governmental organization, they are dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management through independent third-party certification.

PEFC™ endorses national forest certification systems developed through multi-stakeholder processes and tailored to local priorities and conditions. They believe that forest certification needs to be local; this is why they choose to work with national organizations to advance responsible forestry. Forest certification is at PEFC™ core. They provide forest owners, from the large to the small, with a tool to demonstrate their responsible practices, while empowering consumers and companies to buy sustainably.
In 1999, small- and family forest owners from Europe came together to create a forest certification system that would enable them to demonstrate their excellence in sustainable forest management. 20 years on, PEFC™ is the largest forest certification system in the world.
