Chain of Custody Certificate

What is FSC?
FSC certification is internationally recognized as the most rigorous environmental and social standard for responsible forest management. The FSC's transparency, focus on a participatory consultation process, independent monitoring, supply chain tracking and strong management standards are some of the reasons why it is the only forest certification system supported by groups such as the World Wildlife Fund Canada, Greenpeace, Sierra Club of Canada, and the National Aboriginal Forestry Association. FSC is the only international accrediting body which guarantees that designated wood products come from responsibly managed forests.
Why buy FSC-certified products?
By buying FSC-certified products you are investing in our future. Responsible forestry management safeguards natural wildlife habitats, freshwater lakes and rivers, and keeps our forests healthy for generations to come. Consumers are increasingly concerned about the impact of their decisions on the environment and their communities. Some companies are addressing this concern by insuring that their products are made from responsibly harvested raw materials. One of the most widely recognized ways of doing so is by specifying wood products that are independently verified to have met the FSC's international standards.
We take pride in being environmentally conscious. Therefore our manufacturing process is designed to minimize production waste and to conserve valuable hardwood species for future generations.
