As everyone knows, forests play a decisive role in regulating the earth’s climate. Nonetheless the destruction and degradation of forests continues on which leads to the increasing of CO2 emissions, thus step-by step to the catastrophic climate change. Therefore it is important to make one’s contribution to stop this development. Using FSC and PETC wood for furniture is a good opportunity to do that.
FSC wood is wood from forests that have been certified by the international acting, non-governmental Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The forests from which the FSC wood hails from are managed with consideration for people, wildlife and the environment. Logged trees are immediately replaced with new ones or regenerate naturally so that the forest soil will not be emaciated and the forest’s consistency is ensured. Moreover parts of the forest are protected entirely, in order to protect rare animals and plants and wood is not been taken from areas where native people have their home. Because we are not only a company with a passion for good design but in addition with ecological and social sensibility and an interest in environmental safety, we offer a large range of other furniture which is FSC certified. Search for FSC in the search function for the full list.
In addition to that we choose to use Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) wood on all our bespoke furniture. It is the certification system of choice for small forest owners including family and community owned forests. The PEFC is an international non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management through independent third-party certification and requires the forest owners to aim, to campaigns or enhance the protective functions of forests and society. PEFC campaigns for the protection of water resources and from soil erosion and works against illegal logging and infrastructural and social problems in the forest areas. Furthermore forest owners must try to increase the biodiversity.
