The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) has appointed Elisabeth Piveteau, of PiveteauBois, to its UK Board.
The PEFC, the world’s largest forest certification organisation, has commented that the appointment will bring invaluable knowledge of the European timber supply chain and issues surrounding sustainable forestry to the organisation.
Elisabeth Piveteau is the UK & Ireland Export Manager at PiveteauBois, a France-based softwood sawmiller and manufacturer of timber products for the construction, landscaping and energy industries.
PiveteauBois is France’s top supplier of wood pellets, with over 65 years expertise of specifying softwood from certified forests in France and Poland. Its services include wood processing, as well as the design and manufacture of timber products, including sawn timber, structural components, cladding, decking and UC4 fencing.
Elisabeth joined the family company having previously worked for 20 years in sales and business development in the intellectual property and scientific information markets, having previously worked at Thomson Reuters and Macmillan.
Her mission at PiveteauBois is to develop and grow a customer base for its value-added products in the UK and Ireland.
Commenting on her appointment to the UK board at the PEFC, Elisabeth said: “I am delighted to have been asked to join the Board of PEFC UK. Representing a French company in the UK market, I recognise the importance of being able to supply our British customers with certified timber and provide them with assurances of responsible sourcing. I am happy to be able to contribute to the valuable work PEFC does in promoting sustainable forest management around the world.”
PEFC UK’s Executive Director Alun Watkins added: “We are honoured that Elisabeth has agreed to join us at PEFC UK. We will benefit enormously from her knowledge of the French timber sector and this will enable us to better meet the expectations of one of our key stakeholder groups, those exporting to the UK market.”
