RESPONSIBLE SOURCING FOR FOREST AND WOOD
Adopting responsible Forest and Timber sourcing practices throughout the chain of custody is key to preventing deforestation. Certification to standards like PEFC® and FSC™ helps companies prove the socially and environmentally responsible origins of their forest and timber products.
Forests are crucial to the maintaining our planet’s environmental equilibrium. Companies using wood products, such as paper, furniture and timber, must demonstrate a commitment to sustainable sourcing of products, services and suppliers.
Preserving forests is an environmental must: trees absorb CO2, reduce flooding, minimize soil erosion and provide crucial, biodiverse habitats for innumerable species. Preventing deforestation by adopting responsible timber sourcing practices is key to preserving land, wildlife and the water cycle.
By certifying your supply chain and production processes, you can send a powerful message about your commitment to sustainable forestry product sourcing. we provide independent third-party certification to several dedicated forest and timber standards. The process helps you achieve legal compliance, mitigate risk, and contribute to global efforts to protect forests.
