Our environmental cycle – sustainability is more than a word

Our Environmental Circle

We stand for the responsible use of wood. As in nature, we also organize our processes in cycles that conserve resources. Our focus is on our closed material cycle.

Sustainable Forestry

Sustainable forestry

We support the sustainable development goals of the UN. With SDG 15, we are committed to the protection and restoration of terrestrial ecosystems, and to promoting the sustainable management of forests. Our wood comes from 100% verified legal and controlled sources in accordance with ISO 38200. We buy pulpwood from FSC®, PEFC or SFI certified forests in the purchasing region when possible.
