Gabon Paves the Way

Posted 19 October 2007 by Jacob Malthouse to Ecolabel News.

We’ve been following Gabon ever since they took the decision to build a national strategy around sustainability rather than exploitation of natural resources. While we haven’t yet been able to make the trip there we’re pleased to note they’re the first (and only) African ecolabel listed in ecolabelling.org.

Under review by PEFC, we think a forestry ecolabel will prove a critical part of developing their value added industry and we hope other African nations follow suit. Well done Gabon!
