The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) informed that Earrai Coillte Chonnacht Teoranta (ECC) achieved Chain of Custody certification. According to the announcement, the mill is the first one to achieve the certification in Ireland.
Daryl Fahy, Managing Director of ECC, commented:
“Achieving PEFC certification further enforces our commitment to sustainable forestry and provides our customers with a complete range of fully certified timber products.”
ECC was established in 1992 in a remote rural location in the west of Ireland and has grown to become one of the largest and most innovative sawmills in the country. Today ECC processes about 450,000 cubic meters of timber annually. It provides direct employment for 120 full-time staff at the mill, and for a further 190 full-time staff contracted externally in the areas of timber harvesting, extraction and haulage.
