Double A becomes PEFC international stakeholder member

Double A continues its active promotion of sustainable fiber sourcing in Thailand through certification. The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) accepted Double A as an International Stakeholder member, the first Thai company to be accepted in the alliance.

Prior to becoming an International Stakeholder member, Double A says it has played a vital role in the development of Thailand’s national standard for sustainable forest certification by Thailand Industrial Standards Institute (TISI). Double A has also provided a significant support to the Thailand Forestry Certification Council (TFCC) since its creation. The on-going development of the Thailand national standard is a result of the excellent multidivisional collaboration among key stakeholders in the country and PEFC.

“As a member, we now have the critical responsibility of pushing forward a global recognition of Thailand’s sustainable forestry standards,” said Mr. Thirawit Leetavorn, Double A Senior Executive Vice President.

“Becoming a PEFC International Stakeholder member gives us the platform to promote our Trees outside Forests (TOF) based agroforestry.  We are working with PEFC to develop such a global framework that would cover this sustainable sourcing method and enable farmers gain access to the certified wood market,” added Mr. Leetavorn.
