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, we follow the guidelines of the following:
We monitor compliance with their 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.
