We support the conservation of wood as a resource.
As a renewable material, it is sustainable; and nature-friendly management ensures the preservation of these areas. This is why we give priority to the processing of wood from certified forests.
All wood purchased is monitored with a strict control process within the scope of the EUTimberReg and other forest certification systems
For a controlled sustainable supply chain, there is:
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®)
Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC)
We monitor compliance with its guidelines by means of so-called backwards integration.
This means: we are increasingly procuring wood through our own wood-buying and forestry companies allowing us to trace the origins of the wood all the way back to the standing tree
