Wood is one of the few truly sustainable materials. Some of our best loved and ecologically rich ancient woodlands have supplied timber for ships, houses and furniture for millenia.
In response to increasing concern about worldwide forest destruction, we started working with Soil Association Woodmark, one of the first accredited certifying bodies of the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®).
The Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) is an international non-profit organization that promotes responsible forest management. Its system of independent forest certification and product labeling helps consumers identify timber and products from responsibly managed woodlands.
Why FSC certification?
We want forest owners and wood processors to be able to add value to their products through FSC certification, which requires independent auditors.
An FSC certified forest meets agreed-upon standards based on recognition of indigenous peoples' rights, long term economic viability, and wildlife protection.
How Can I Get My Product/Business FSC Certified?
We have auditors working with Soil Association Woodmark who are licensed to conduct forest certification audits and chain-of-custody audits for forest product businesses.
