The new member countries are: Australia; Brazil; Chile; Estonia; Lithuania; Luxembourg; Malaysia; Slovak Republic. To date, the PEFC Council has endorsed 13 schemes, which account for over 44 million hectares of certified sustainably managed forests.This is by far the largest area of certified forest world-wide recognized by an independent body.
