We have once again been successful in meeting the criteria for PEFC and FSC certification acknowledging our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment by taking a responsible approach about how we source and use the earths natural resourses.
Why is this so important?
PEFC is a global umbrella organisation for the assessment and mutual recognition of national forest certification schemes developed in a multi-stakeholder process.
These national schemes build upon the inter-governmental processes for the promotion of sustainable forest management.
PEFC works throughout the forest supply chain to promote good practice and to ensure forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards.
Chain of custody certification of timber or timber-derived products gives independently verified assurance that the wood used originates from responsibly managed forests.
FSC is an international not for profit organisation that brings people together to find solutions which promote responsible stewardship of the world’s forests.
Members include environmental, social organisations and businesses, forest owners, campaigners and individuals whoset the FSC Principles and Criteria. The FS trademark allows consumers worldwide to recognise products that support the growth of responsible forest management.
By maintaining a certified chain of custody system, companies can provide assurances that their products are sourced and produced in compliance with a globally recognised ecological, social and economic standard.
For a product to qualify for certification, all companies who take legal ownership of the products and process, trade or repack them, need to be certified.
