The National Forest Certification Scheme was endorsed by the Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) in October 2020. Implementing sustainable forest management and forest certification is an important goal of the forestry sector in the period of 2021 – 2030 and a vision towards 2050, directly contributing to Vietnam’s goal of sustainable development, efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change, especially the goal of achieving net zero emissions in 2050. The National Forest Certification Scheme aims to increase the added value of forestry through the application of qualified varieties and appropriate forest management measures, improving and enhancing ecosystem services, and protecting biodiversity; ensuring the legal source of wood materials to meet the certification requirements of the market.
