Social Responsibility

Responsible forest management is an essential part of our business. Social and environmental responsibility goes hand in hand for today and future generations.

Integrity, reliability, responsibility and trust are part of our everyday working environment. We respect the principle of sustainable forest management when choosing our suppliers.

According to LEED (Leadership Energy Environmental Design), if timber is manufactured within 500 miles of where it was harvested it is to be classified as a green product, which is the case with most of our products.
