FSC® Certified Wood
FSC certification shows that VELFAC complies with the highest social, economic and environmental standards regarding responsible forest and supply chain management. FSC (the Forest Stewardship Council®) is an international, non-governmental organisation (NGO) dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests, and is supported by other NGOs including WWF, Greenpeace and the Woodland Trust.
Illegal logging is a common practice in many parts of the world, but the FSC certification system provides a guarantee that the timber used for VELFAC windows can be traced through the supply chain and comes from responsibly managed sources.
FSC certification is about
- Promoting responsible forest management techniques
- Recognition and respect of the rights of indigenous peoples living near or in forests
- Traceability of all timber back to the forest of origin
- Consideration of nature, wildlife and people
The entire VELFAC production of windows and doors is FSC certified. Exeptions are only on component level.
