We stand for the responsible use of the raw material wood. Like in nature, we also organise our processes in cycles that conserve resources. Our focus is on our closed material cycle.
We are committed to promoting sustainable forestry. We ensure compliance with legal and social standards in our supply chains. Our wood comes from 100 % verified legal and controlled sources according to ISO 38200. We buy roundwood preferably from certified forests in the purchasing region.
We prefer to buy by-products from regional and certified sawmills. By using by-products we save natural resources.
To continually improve our environmental performance in the production process, we are opting for internationally certified energy and environmental management systems in accordance with ISO 50001, ISO 14001 and EMAS.
We provide full transparency with Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). They provide professionals with important information on environmental and health aspects, and are also available to interested end-users – for each of our base products.
We recycle waste wood in our production of wood-based materials. It comes from disposed goods such as furniture, pallets or packaging material. In this way we conserve fresh resources and extend the effect of CO2 storage.
We convert heat into green electricity in our own biomass power plants. The biomass and wood residues can no longer be used as materials in production.
