OUR WOOD COMES FROM SUSTAINABLY MANAGED FORESTS
We value wood. We care for forests. We have high wood quality, durability and environmental performance requirements for our suppliers.
Knowing how long it takes for forests and ecosystems to recover, we wholeheartedly support sustainable use of natural resources and environmental protection. We feel great responsibility towards wood. Our wood material is carefully examined and originates from sustainably managed forests, never from endangered forests, tropical forests or rainforests. The legality and origin of material coming from outside the European Union is checked in accordance with the requirements of the European Timber Regulation.
If desired, we can supply our wood materials with the certificates listed below.
