This particular certification, that has been granted to many factories we are exclusively cooperating with, and which regards their production facilities, certifies that the raw materials comply with the PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) standards.
The application of the regulations that are included in the technical document which is signed by the wood manufacturers of Northern Europe, certifies that a company contributes to the protection of forest ecosystems, by using raw materials that come from forests of Northern Europe, which are managed in an environmentally-friendly way.
The PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) is an independent international non-profit organization, having as goal to promote the sustainable management of forests at every level and to contribute to the improvement of the image of wood manufacturers. This goal is achieved thanks to the environmentally-friendly forest management which is certified through the system of traceability of wood products, that “reveals” all their manufacturing stages, from the processing of raw materials to the final stage (the manufacture of products or wooden floors).
Today, according to the assessment of the PEFC, there are more than 46 million hectares of certified forest management worldwide.
